Our Company

White Slate Theatre was formed when two friends co-directed a new play together for their final Masters production at university. They found a fruitful, balanced and exciting dynamic and decided to set up their own company. The name White Slate speaks of new beginnings, fresh starts, blank canvases and open-ended possibilities. With a love for language and literature, influenced by great artists and poets, the company strive to transform linguistic devices and artistic styles into innovative striking productions. 

Since finishing their residency as Associate Company at the University of Kent in 2015, White Slate Theatre are still Canterbury based appreciating the support from local theatres and establishments, and always on the look out for more!

White Slate Theatre have a group of collaborators that provide their production team and artistic team and they often work with students from the University of Kent. However, they are always looking for new and eager participants so send an email if you are interested.
