Theatre Alibi are contemporary storytellers, creating work for all ages that moves freely between the intimate and the epic and aspires to be inventive, joyful, moving, vivid, intricate and ambitious. Our productions are marked by a passion for the live event - actors as storytellers absolutely present with their audience, live music, a delight in revealing acts of transformation that would often be confined to the wings and a level of inventiveness that allows us to embrace action that might seem to be unstageable. The company integrates a wide variety of art forms into its work and recent productions have featured animation, film, puppetry, photography and music both live and recorded.

Theatre Alibi tours to large and small venues nationally and regularly co-produces with other theatres, including Oxford Playhouse, Exeter Northcott Theatre, The Lowry, Exeter Phoenix and Polka Theatre. The company also performs its work to over 12,000 children in primary and special schools in the south west, providing a first experience of theatre to many.
