Due to the nature of our work -there are a set of unique challenges that means, for each show, we enter into partnerships with many varied organisations.

It’s through these partnerships that we find space to rehearse and crucially perform in! Costumes and workshops are designed and made, volunteers ensure that the audience travel with us in a safe and enjoyable environment and so much more. Because of many people’s enthusiasm and support, in all conditions, it means that we can deliver the best show possible. Burn the Curtain are eternally grateful for all that have helped us over the years.
