LAS is a word in the Irish language. It means to ignite, turn on or set alight.
LAStheatre specialises in creating theatrical experiences; ranging from ambitious theatrical productions, to festival performance and one off events. With our audience we create worlds (big and small), transforming spaces through play and adventure, spirit and imagination.
Since 2013 over a quarter of a million people have seen our shows. These productions have explored what it means to be human through a zombie apocalypse, transformed Victorian medical records into an interactive ward round, imagined our changing environment in the year 2050, embroiled families in a tribal tournament and saved creativity from destruction.
Our work has been described as ‘spellbinding’ (Manchester Evening News), ‘powerful’ (The Scotsman), ‘atmospheric’ (The Herald), ‘fascinating’ (BBC) and ‘thrillingly immediate’ (FT). Whether we are creating work for an adult or family audience, our aim is to ignite conversation and set imaginations alight.
