Based in Manchester, Ransack Theatre are an award-winning company creating imaginative and entertaining drama with an immersive aesthetic.

Since 2014 we have engaged in three main overlapping practices: site specific theatre, immersive experience and new writing. We often combine these elements to create ambitious events in cellars, office blocks, abandoned school houses, railway arches, old Victorian residences, disused mills and studio theatres.

We are currently Supported Artists with the Royal Exchange Theatre, through their supportive Open Exchange Network for North-West theatre makers.

 

Resident Artists:

Piers Black, Emma Colledge, Ali Michael.

Associates:

Cat Robey (Director), Cerys Spilsbury (Production)

Irene Jade (Design), Mark Harris (Sound Design)

James Warburton (Actor), Aaron Smith (Set Construction) 

Catt Belcher (Producer), Claire O'Neill (Founding Member)

Verity Mullan-Wilkinson (Founding Member),

The reason I keep seeing loads of theatre is that occasionally one will leap out and make it worthwhile. #MOTH @RansackTheatre
