Old Sole Theatre Company formed in 2014 with aspirations similar to most emerging theatre companies; to create exciting and engaging work. Since then we have honed our ethics and practice, questioning where we sit on the theatrical spectrum.

And the answer is - we don’t.


We evolve with each project. The work we invest in has greater significance than any fixed company identity or specific avenue of theatre. We create work with speed and energy, reflecting the pace of the modern world. Old Sole aims to create original work that is immediate, energetic and fearless. We champion the art of collaboration. Our core members, creative associates and those who work with us strive toward the same goals:

To meet. To share. To build. To dare. To change.



  • We believe that each project is unique. Our work continues to shape our identity as a company.

  • We believe that risk is essential in making theatre.

  • We believe that theatre must be affordable and accessible for all.

  • Music is at the heart of our work.

  • We believe in progress and innovation, art which reflects the world that inspires it. No classics here!

  • We believe that community and theatre are essential to one another.

  • We champion the art of collaboration.



  • We will “love the living writer”.

  • We will continue to readdress the gender imbalance in theatre.
