Established in 2017, Waste Not Theatre is a flexible, multi-disciplinary company showcasing high-quality new writing and performance. 

 

Our approach is to create collaborative theatre, with our casts and guest creatives as much a driving force in each production as company members. 

 

Originally formed by alumni of the Old Vic Community Company, Waste Not Theatre encourages its members to work outside their comfort zone and become multi-skilled theatre makers. The company has gone on to produce several sell-out shows, with new work in continuous development. 

 

We work with new writers, directors and actors across theatrical genres and welcome all levels of experience, but with exacting standards of quality... 

 

…if you've got the talent, don’t waste it.
