Our Aims

The White Knight Theatre Company uses theatre to bring new perspectives to subjects of current social relevance including: the abuse of power, isolation and social justice. Our roots are in the working class. We try to keep things cheerful by bringing humour to these sometimes dark subjects.

We also:

  • Value the Modern European literary tradition particularly Brecht, Sartre, Kafka and Beckett

  • Enjoy the influence of a wide range of music from Bowie to Philip Glass

  • Work across the disciplines of writing, acting, dance and music

  • Create work collaboratively using devised, verbatim and 'found' material

As a company we want to:

  • tackle difficult questions about the human condition

  • have some fun

  • group, ungroup and regroup as the subject matter requires

Companies we admire include:
