    The children we work with in our inner city area with multiple challenges, really benefit from Strange Town after-school drama. It allows them to become confident speaking in front of others, solving problems in groups and teams and performing to audiences. It gives them a sense of achievement and pride in what they have overcome to speak and perform confidently. Colin McLean, Headteacher

    A model of youth theatre that really works. The Scotsman
  • My involvement with Strange Town as a young actor is without doubt a big reason for my desire to go on to train as a professional actor. The chance to work with emerging young writers on new pieces of work, has been wonderful. The encouragement and opportunities for development which Strange Town has provided I will always be grateful for. Without them I am not sure that I would be going to drama school. Ben Clifford, previous Young Company member
  • As a practitioner it was so good to work for an organisation where I felt supported and valued. Strange Town has a great balance of pushing exciting work and quality provision whilst looking after staff. Young director
