At Milk Crate Theatre we believe every person deserves to be truly seen and heard. Our transformative practices are focused on a Theory of Change and our work with individuals can lead to real and positive societal change. Through the power of performance, and utilising genuinely inclusive and collaborative material making, we amplify the under-represented voices of those who face disadvantage or who belong to marginalised communities.
Our performance works go beyond mere storytelling; they share compelling and genuine narratives which offer audiences a new lens to view society's most pressing issues, both challenging and expanding perspectives to inspire positive change in the world.
