Kneehigh are one of the most exciting touring companies in the country. As huge fans of their vigorous, accessible and cheerfully anarchic brand of popular theatre, we absolutely love working with them.

They are true kindred spirits with the Everyman and love making work in Liverpool. Our co-production of Dead Dog in a Suitcase – and other love songs has toured the world since starting here in 2014.

Deborah Aydon, our Executive Director says: “Every Kneehigh show is a theatrical feast: hugely inventive storytelling, glorious original music, gorgeous design, wicked humour and exceptional performances. They make their shows in a set of barns, high on the cliffs in Cornwall, and there’s always a wild sense of freedom in their work.”
