acta uses the power of theatre to change peoples lives. We do this by involving people in creating their own original plays and performances projects.

We believe that theatre belongs to everyone, and everyone has a story to tell. We enable communities to share their stories, creating original shows that attract audiences who rarely attend theatre.

We have a wheel chair accessible venue with a hearing loop. We show 4 / 5 relaxed dementia friendly screening per year.
