The Small Things Theatre Company aspires to delight, fascinate and challenge by producing and nurturing new theatre with a strong focus on education. We collaborate with playwrights, actors, musicians, comedians and poets and, through our Night Of Small Things, provide a platform for artists to experiment and showcase their work. Our education department reaches out to and inspires students of all ages and our plays always carry a strong social message which we further explore in workshops and post show discussions. Theatre allows us to see things from other people’s perspective and Small Things Theatre believe it is a force for good that can help, heal, unite as well as thoroughly entertain.
So why Small Things? Well as well as our mission statement above we delight in the small moments in drama that move hearts and minds. A look, a sigh, a move or a single word can make your heart burst or your gut drop and it is only the most exquisite productions that find these minute details to bring the stage alive. It is our desire to produce all our work with moments that reflect how wonderfully nuanced life is reminding our audiences that it is often the small things that make a big difference.
