Theatre Alibi, Polka, Kneehigh and the Unicorn have been responsible for some of the most vital and innovative work in British theatre in recent years
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. Past productions include Goucher's War, A Flying Visit, Ministry of Fear, Cobbo, Spies, Teapot, Lost & Found, The Crowstarver, Why the Whales Came, One in a Million, You Can't Catch Me and Shelf Life.
Founded in 1982 by Alison Hodge and Tim Spicer and based in Exeter, Theatre Alibi tours its work to theatres and arts centres in the south west and nationally. The company also performs in Devon & South West primary schools, providing a first experience of theatre to many children who have little access to the arts.
Theatre Alibi is supported by Arts Council England South West, Devon County Council and Exeter City Council.
