Charity information


Quarantine create progressive, socially-engaged theatre. We do this through working with people from all ages and backgrounds, foregrounding stories that are rarely heard on stage.

Previous collaborators have included children, older people, pregnant women, soldiers, philosophers, unemployed young men, refugee and asylum seekers, and hundreds of others...

Through all of our work we aim to create the circumstances for conversation and connection between people that may never otherwise meet

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    Quarantine is an ambitious, artist-led organisation. We devise theatre projects and public events that create spaces for reflection on and discussion about what it means to be alive right now.

    We have a 20 year track record of delivering theatre and performance projects that are original, beautiful, and fundamentally human. Over the years we have involved thousands of people in our work - as performers, participants and audiences.

    Our vision is for a society that is inclusive, diverse and finds strength in difference, and our mission is to create theatre and other public events that begin to make this vision a reality.

  • Aims

    Quarantine aims to:

    • To create original, socially-engaged theatre that achieves artist excellence through celebrating the diversity and skills of our collaborators and pushing the boundaries of the art-form.
    • To foreground stories that are rarely heard on stage through involvement of a diverse range of people of all ages and backgrounds in our projects.
    • To create public spaces for reflection and conversation that are open and inclusive, bringing together people who may never otherwise have the opportunity to meet.
