Dark Horse Theatre

Dark Horse Theatre National Touring Company & Trainer of Actors

Dark Horse is a national touring theatre company that premieres new
writing. An ensemble of learning disabled actors feature in productions, and exceptional non learning disabled actors from the broader industry are also cast in tours.
The work is physical and text based, features original composed music and is visually impactful.

Appealing to a broad, general and adult audience, the company’s work has a reputation for surprise, innovation and the ability to reverse expectation in powerful and challenging ways, exploring stories and ideas which reflect the human condition to an audience.

Dark Horse is also a leading vocational trainer of actors with learning
disabilities and develops skills in preparation for work in the industry at the highest level. A unique acting methodology featuring 'the silent approach' hand in hand with 'the actor scheme', a competency based system used to develop and evaluate key skills in Stanislavsky based method, offers all Dark Horse actors the opportunity to train viably for work in all performance media.
