Menagerie Theatre Company
Menagerie Theatre Company is the leading independent new writing theatre company in the East of England. Based in Cambridge, we have been creating theatre for over sixteen years and have a regional, national and international reputation for the development of first class new writing for the stage. We seek out and support talented writers in order to develop and produce innovative new theatre. As well as touring widely, we run workshops, writer development courses and produce the annual Hotbed Festival in Cambridge.
The Ideas Stage
The Ideas Stage is an initiative from Menagerie to develop creative partnerships with universities. We have produced a diverse range of exciting projects, all of which use theatre to explore the scientific, historical, political and cultural ideas which shape our world. More information
