Make original work that responds to the social and psychological contexts of everyday life. We are interested in the ordinary rituals of day-to-day living and the strange personal details that lie beneath the skin of social convention. Questions at the centre of our work are ‘how do we experience the worlds that we inhabit?’ and ‘how do we perform our lives?’
Ranters Theatre was established in 1994 and has created over 15 critically acclaimed productions and has been programmed in numerous international art festivals to 11 countries worldwide.
