About Us



We document and imagine.
We listen and interpret and translate.
This is theatre for us and you.

For the people that get left out of the story books,
For the Nine to Five and the routine,
And for fantasy, and imagination,
And all the wonderful things that just haven’t happened yet.

This is theatre that takes life as it is.
That doesn’t sugarcoat or mock.
Theatre that glories in the little absurdities of real life.



The Flickbook Theatre Philosophy:

Whatever floats your boat (but doesn't sink anyone else's).




We formed in January 2014 as undergraduates intent on devising vibrant and brave theatre. We performed our debut production Three Words in May 2014. This was a manifesto for what we felt theatre must be: joyous, live, alive, exciting and accessible. Now, almost three years on, we have toured our second show Cartography and are preparing to make our third show, Casket Case. We are also now associate artists of In Good Company until 2018. They will be working with us for two years, supporting us in our practise and development.
