What we do

Brilliant, forward-thinking theatre that responds to its time and place

Our mission is to dazzle and inspire, reflect the aspirations and concerns of our audiences and fuel civic pride. In our theatres, communities, schools and outside Liverpool – we hope to ignite the imagination and explore what it is to be human.

Everyman & Playhouse theatres

At the Everyman, we have a resident Company of actors who are with us for six months of the year. Embedded in the local community, they perform four shows in rotation and work on various outreach projects during their time with us. There’s a short visiting season where like-minded friends (KneehighGraeaeHoipolloi) share their work with us and, of course, there’s the legendary Everyman Rock ‘n’ Roll panto at Christmas.

It is our aspiration to bring national and international companies of the highest quality to the Playhouse and the city. We work with a number of companies in a residency style (HeadlongOut of Joint, Northern BroadsidesShakespeare’s GlobeGecko1927). Their regular engagement with us often stretches beyond the work on stage, into our schools and communities.

Our award-winning youth arts programme, Young Everyman Playhouse (YEP), is integrated into every aspect of our work and includes traineeships in producing, technical theatre, directing and acting.
