Flintlock Theatre aims to make theatre that is at one and the same time familiar and entirely surprising. Incorporating music, movement, dance, technology, new writing and classic texts, we put our audience front and centre of the theatrical experiences we create. We tour to pubs, village halls, town squares and the main stages of regional theatres. Reimagined classics, new writing, verbatim and site-specific work are all part of our portfolio; their common characteristics being a commitment to great storytelling, a love of tall tales and a delight in the anarchic and irreverent.

Our theatre is founded on our sense of the potential of ensemble and a disregard for the traditional barriers between audience and performer.
