VISIBLE PRODUCTIONS - New theatre of provocation and beauty that celebrates and transcends age

 We are pleased to announce that Visible Productions will be performing 'Who do we think we are?' at the Northern Stage on Tuesday 30th June. 

Visible work with large and diverse casts of professional actors in their 60s, 70s and 80s in an ensemble context, presenting work that is theatrical in style, with music and physicality as important features. Who Do We Think We Are? put us on the map for high quality professional theatre that challenges preconceived notions of what it is to be ‘older’.  For further details of this performance, please see Visible Productions or to book tickets, please see Northern Stage‌
