Company Vision


Reading Rep strives to become a regional theatre with a national reputation.


Reading’s resident professional theatre combines high-class productions with ground-breaking
education and community engagement to help transform Reading and the surrounding area’s cultural
landscape. Reading Rep:

Produces diverse new voices on the stage. Working with new directors, new playwrights and new
practitioners, we present plays from classics to new writing, revivals to musicals; producing outstanding productions of world class plays for the widest possible audience.

Nurtures diverse new voices in the classroom. Through our Creative Learning programmes we train the
next generation of theatre makers: transforming arts education in the UK by placing enterprise,
experience and employability at its centre.

Reaches diverse new voices in the community. Through our ENGAGE! programme we work alongside
the most disadvantaged and marginalised communities in Reading to promote inclusion and accessibility in the arts.

Theatre can have a transformative impact on the local community. I’m thrilled that Reading Rep can tell the stories that play a small role in revitalising our cultural landscape.Paul Stacey – Artistic Director
