About Immediate Theatre

Immediate Theatre’s vision is for a society where questioning, articulate and motivated people create and collaborate to build thriving communities

Our mission is:

To engage young people (especially those at risk of marginalisation or exclusion) in high quality artistic projects which involve creative and personal development, training and employment that equip them with the skills of enquiry, collaboration and communication needed today to shape the thriving communities of tomorrow.

Our company aims are:

  • To provide inspirational participatory theatre programmes enabling young people at high risk to reach their potential
  • To offer a theatre programme for young audiences which explores social issues and enables them to engage in the process of change
  • To improve employability for young people and create pathways to employment in the arts.
  • To support the involvement of young people in decision making and to develop future community leaders


We not only give people a stage on which to perform, we give them the confidence to stand on that stage and have their voice heard. Nurturing this new found confidence is important to us. Therefore, we create supported pathways across our projects so participation is not just an isolated experience but an ongoing journey.

Immediate Theatre was established as a charity in 1996 and our offices are based in Hackney. We currently have a staff team of 14 and are governed by a board of trustees.
