    Burn the Curtain specialise in taking audiences to special places, and celebrating the places that are special to you. Sometimes this involves some physical challenge, but no one should feel that these places are off limits to them. We are committed to making sure that anyone can attend our work, and we look forward to making our performances even more accessible in the future. If you want to attend a performance or activity and you have questions around accessibility, please get in touch we will be happy to help.


    Participatory outdoor theatre is a unique line of work. Physically demanding but extremely rewarding - every event is different, each show particular to the people who attend it. So we don't recruit in the usual theatrical manner of holding auditions - often the performers and crew who are best at this kind of work are not necessarily those who have come through a traditional training, but those with a passion for working outdoors in a responsive way. Often our actors and crew pick themselves - this is not just another acting job, but a unique calling. We are always happy to hear from people who want to work with us, performers, makers technicians and volunteers. If you are interested, please get in touch and tell us about yourself.
