Who we are

An award-winning theatre company based in Wigan, ThickSkin creates work across live and digital platforms. We produce bold and ambitious theatre; using our distinctive physicality and cinematic style to reach and inspire young, new and diverse audiences across the world. We nurture talented theatre makers, providing a springboard for artists who are ready to take a leap.

What we do

Our work includes a wide range of creative approaches to tell stories in new and inspiring ways. From live stage productions to virtual reality experiences, to immersive audio plays, we make theatre that is rooted in contemporary culture. The company was founded by Neil Bettles and Laura Mallows in 2010 to create space for under-represented young people to be heard and celebrated in theatre. Since then, we have strived to tackle barriers to the arts for young people and early career artists.
