Why commission Talawa?

Why commission Talawa?

For 35 years, Talawa Theatre Company has been at the forefront of telling Black stories on British stages. We are the UK's outstanding Black theatre company. 

Our artist development activity foregrounds the talents of Black creatives in theatre. Talawa writers, directors, actors and creative personnel work in all areas of British theatre, TV and Film, enriching the cultural life of the UK beyond measure.  

Through our work, we actively listen to, develop and support Black people at all stages of their creative careers, equipping our artists with the skills and tools necessary to navigate an often-prejudiced world.
