Previous nights have included work from Ellie Stamp; Council XI; Jules Orcullo; Claire Gaydon; YESYESNONO (Total Award Winner’s 2017 with 5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist); This Noise; Joseph Morgan-Schofield; and many more!

About the Company
Barrel Organ is a UK-based touring company founded in the West Midlands that works collaboratively to create politically engaged theatre. We are proud to be associate artists at Camden People’s Theatre.
Our style is inherently, self-consciously theatrical. We draw attention to the context of theatre and highlight the audiences’ relationship to their surroundings. We create pieces that engage with the audience and ask them to interrogate various aspects of twenty-first century culture.
