Come and Work With Us

From our home in Liverpool we create world-class theatre for home and beyond. From London to Dublin, we create theatre for all.
PurpleCoat believe that finance shouldn't be a barrier to accessing art. We aim to provide world-class classical theatre by breaking down social barriers and working with local, undiscovered actors and creatives.

Theatre is, and can be, for all.

The Homecoming

SEASON

'Go on. Have a sip from my glass.

Sit on my lap. Take a long cool sip.

Put your head back and

open your mouth.'

Ruth, The Homecoming.
Harold Pinter

2017 is off to a cracking start with our biggest ever Youth Theatre production saying a fond farewell to a season of work celebrating Shakespeare's Contempoaries. After smash-hit productions of Volpone and The Jew of Malta, our biggest audience ever came to celebrate the rip-roaring ride of The Rover, which took place in Chester in May.

Next up we have the all-female classic, The House of Bernarda Alba, and 'Harold Pinter's greatest play' The Homecoming, which will play as part of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival.

We're planning a big summer, with the return of our Shakespearean Summer School. Once again we will work with people of all ages to celebrate the work and words of our greatest playwright, this year finishing with a huge weekend of performances at the RSC in Stratford Upon Avon.

And to bring it all to a close, we have a surprise or two up our sleeve which you'll have to wait a little bit longer to find out about. Watch this space!

 

Karl Falconer, Artistic Director

'One of the greatest performances in recent memory'

Company One are an ensemble of actors working together to create work from home and on tour.

We produce a range of classical theatre productions for audiences across the UK and Ireland, and are committed to supporting access to, and engagement in, the arts for people in the North of England. We want to work with people who we believe have genuine talent and give them the training and performance opportunities they deserve to get themselves noticed. Recruitment takes place regularly:
