ABOUT OUR WORK

LAStheatre is an award-winning theatre company based in Margate. LAS is a word in the Irish language. It means to turn on or set alight.

Since 2012, hundreds of thousands of people have seen our shows. These productions have explored human rights by putting audiences in the heart of a zombie apocalypse, brought award-winning picture books and novels to life, transformed Victorian medical records into an interactive ward round, and filled city streets with characters from Charles Dicken's best loved stories.

Our work is described as 'spellbinding' (Manchester Evening News), ‘powerful’ (The Scotsman), 'atmospheric' (The Herald), ‘fascinating’ (BBC) and 'thrillingly immediate' (FT).

In all our work, we aim to kindle important conversations and ignite imaginations.
