LAS is a word in the Irish language. It means to ignite, turn on or set alight.
LAStheatre creates layered, urgent, heart-driven stories that engage people of all ages. These tales tackle important and complex ideas and themes in surprising, joyous and participatory ways.
Since 2012 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, and saved creativity from destruction.
Our work is described by others as ‘spellbinding’ (Manchester Evening News), ‘powerful’ (The Scotsman), ‘atmospheric’ (The Herald), ‘fascinating’ (BBC) and ‘thrillingly immediate’ (FT).
Our enduring aim is to create work that ignites conversation and sets imaginations alight.
