We are the University of Lincoln’s company-in-residence at Lincoln Arts Centre and each year we work to produce and tour high-quality, original performance to venues and festivals around the UK.

The company is managed by the members who can take on a variety of roles within the company including performing, writing, directing, producing, marketing and providing technical support for our performance work.

Membership is through application, and company members include a mixture of current students, graduates, professional theatre makers, and practising staff from Lincoln School of Creative Arts, based at the University of Lincoln.

Each year we work to research, develop and produce original performance works, for inclusion in events, programmes and festivals: These pieces might be proposed by members, or led by visiting professional artists. In the past we’ve taken work to different audiences, theatre’s and festivals including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – the world’s largest gathering of audiences, artists, directors, producers, promoters and presenters.

We try to take our shows-in-development to showcases and scratch events so we can receive feedback on the work, access opportunities for networking and additional training, and help build the skills everyone involved in making our work great.

Many Lincoln Company Alumni have gone on to form professional companies of their own, including Flickbook Theatre who embarked on an Arts Council England Funded UK tour, Backpack Ensemble who won three major awards at the 2018 NSDF (including the Sunday Times Play-writing Award) and were invited to perform at Sprint Festival 2018 and The Pleasance, Echo Echo Echo and Push to Shove who we supported to take their work to Edinburgh 2017 and have since both been awarded public funding, and Eggbox Theatre who are based in the East Midlands and specialise in interactive theatre for very young audiences. We have supported these alumni companies through access to resources, advice and support, and are incredibly proud of them and their successes.
