100 PRODUCTIONS 10 YEARS 1 EVERYMAN & PLAYHOUSE


WE ARE TWO DISTINCT THEATRES, ALMOST A MILE APART, WHICH TOGETHER MAKE UP A SINGLE ARTISTIC FORCE.

For over ten years we have been driven by our passion for our art-form, our love of our city and our unswerving belief that theatre at its best can enhance lives. While our two performance bases could hardly be more different, they are united by our commitment to brilliant, humane, forward-thinking theatre that responds to its time and place. Our mission is to reflect the aspirations and concerns of our audiences, to dazzle and inspire them, welcome and connect with them, nurture the artists within them and fuel their civic pride. Wherever these connections happen – whether in our theatres, in the community, in schools, or outside Liverpool – we hope to ignite the imagination, explore what it is to be human and always to exceed expectation. We are two buildings with many audiences and communities, brought together by a sincere belief that theatre at its best transforms lives.
