Present Company is a female-run theatre collective that produces accessible art. Present Company aims to ask something of an audience, to take a risk with an audience, to immerse an audience, to make theatre that is not in a theatre. Present Company looks to cross-pollinate with interdisciplinary collaborations. Present Company seeks to reframe and re-present known works in the hope that we all learn to reframe our perspectives.
Present Company wants to create an unrepeatable experience with you.
