Welcome to Prospero

We are an inclusive theatre company founded in 2015, that uses drama to improve the quality of life for adults and young people with disabilities and mental health conditions. Our dual purpose is artistic endeavour and socialisation and we believe the one feeds into the other. We work to improve the quality of life of each person by giving the opportunity to be creative, express emotions, work as a valid member of a team and have a voice.
