A Note on the Season

We are thrilled to announce the beginning of the next chapter at Theatre Direct, led by our new Artistic Director Lisa Marie DiLiberto with Managing Producer Kate Walker.

This year has been inspired by a desire to engage with young people as collaborators on the creation, production and presentation of theatre. At Theatre Direct we aim not only to speak to youth but to activate their unique imaginations and realities by inviting them to join in.

Theatre Direct has always presented provocative and challenging theatre that young people connect with in a meaningful, truthful and complex way.  Building on this foundation, in the coming season we will grow our repertoire to include interactive, participatory and site-specific work. It is our hope that by expanding our form and extending our reach we can offer more opportunity for participation and greater possibility for inclusion across different cultures, abilities and ages.

This season, Theatre Direct brings you innovative work by some of the most established artists in our industry alongside inventive new pieces created by rigorous emerging artists, all of which will undoubtedly inspire the next generation of young people through theatre.
