Welcome to Dialogue


If you go to the theatre, but don’t have people to talk with about it, Dialogue is for you.

If you go to the theatre, but feel you don’t know what to say about it, Dialogue is for you.

If you don’t go to the theatre, because you don’t think it’s for you, Dialogue is for you.

And if you love theatre, see a lot of it, make it, or write about it, Dialogue is for you, too.

Dialogue opens up conversations around theatre, as a way of talking about how we live and make a society together.

Dialogue is led by Maddy Costa and Jake Orr:

Maddy writes about theatre and music. She contributes to Exeunt and the Guardian, blogs at Deliq, edits the blog New Theatre in Your Neighbourhood in association with Fuel, and co-curates Something Other with Mary Paterson. She is resident critic with Chris Goode & Company.

Jake is co-founder and artistic director of A Younger Theatre and its annual festival for emerging theatre companies, Incoming. He is an independent producer, theatre-maker and occasional writer.
