With a local, national and international reputation for delivering creative, challenging and vigorous theatre, and with numerous high-profile awards tucked under its belt, Kneehigh Theatre is one of the UK’s leading touring theatre companies.
Based in a collection of rural barns on the south coast of Cornwall and working with a selection of exceptionally talented artists, performers, technicians, musicians and makers, Kneehigh’s programme of shows is consistently popular among Cornwall’s tourists and local residents alike.
With a long list of previous productions to their name, such as ‘Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs)’, ‘Brief Encounter’, ‘Steptoe and Son’ and ‘The King of Prussia’, Kneehigh tours across the UK and has earned itself a name for delivering some of the most spellbinding and jaw-dropping theatrical performances.
The Kneehigh Asylum – a purpose-built performance tent – was launched in 2010, offering a beautiful and flexible space for shows. To date, it has run six seasons of engaging, compelling and thought-provoking theatre and live music. Although the Kneehigh Asylum will not be operating throughout 2017, keen Kneehigh fans should keep an eye on their website and social media channels for further updates.
Alongside its national and international performance schedules and the Asylum seasons, Kneehigh Theatre also runs Kneehigh Rambles: a programme which aims to engage with communities in Cornwall and beyond through creative events and exhibitions.
