Company Principles

“Brave Bold Drama believes that creativity and theatre are for everyone, and our productions and workshop programme reflect this. Our theatre has delighted audiences aged from 8 months to over 80.

We like to take out theatre out and about rather than waiting for people to come to us. We stage pop-up performances in cafes, bars and even bread shops. We make innovative street theatre for community festivals and events.

We also take our family theatre to schools, playing them just after school finishes so families can watch together.”


Our tours have taken us to conventional theatres, community centres and fringe festivals. The theatre we produce features playful audience participation, original music and layered narrative to appeal to all ages. Although no house-style – every show boasts object manipulation, character multi-roling and post-show interactive play for the younger audience.

Brave Bold Drama has a broad portfolio of community engagement projects ranging from creative immersive play in children’s centres, drama and dance workshops in schools, and imaginative role-play sessions in care homes. We have received regular commissions to create bespoke performances for large-scale community events such as The Festival of Nature, Bristol Bright Night and The Bristol Harbour Festival.
