We are a professional theatre company based in Lewisham, South East London and our artistic policy is to deliver World Theatre and Educational and arts projects at the highest standards. We are particularly interested in developing new work, be it new writing or translations and supporting the development of the next generation of theatre makers by providing training and development opportunities to BAME artists.
Drawing upon the creativity of artists and writers of many cultures, we seek to create a deeper understanding of the richness and diversity of the society in which we live, making theatre beyond borders.
StoneCrabs is a director-led company: its interest in nurturing new directors from all sectors of the community fuels this programme. Each year a small number of young directors go through training programme centred around production, project management and theatre directing. It introduces artistic and practical management tools for the director and encourages an individual approach, utilizing the director’s own vision. At the end of the programme, the participants put their training into practice by producing a festival of staged readings with professional actors, each participant directing a play of their choice. This popular Programme has been running since 2006.
