This is theatre that genuinely collaborates with its audience, taking you on a journey, often outdoors, always in unusual spaces, and inviting you to roll up your sleeves and engage with activity along the way.

About us


The experience of a Heroica production is unique. Each play event illuminates the life of a secret heroine, celebrating a woman of great achievement, often a maverick and usually unsung.



This touring production feels like it is finally breaking down the barriers to understanding the power behind Eardley’s paintings. By scraping away the layers of this complex and fiercely talented individual, the audience is given a fleeting glimpse into her inner life. It made me weep – and that was a good thing.
