About Peoplescape Theatre

Peoplescape Theatre was founded by Emily Capstick and Alison Hale in Manchester in1996. In 2006 we began creating work in London as well, and since then our reputation has led to presenting at conferences & delivering training across the UK & internationally.

Our work is multisensory, accessible and enabling: creating playful and magical learning experiences. We often use puppets, props, storytelling and music in our performances.


Our projects aim to inspire imaginations and creativity through the telling of stories; empowering artists and audiences to to explore their thoughts and feelings about the world in a safe environment. We want to recognise and promote the value of stories which often go unheard giving voice to histories which are not always in the history books.


We prioritise creative opportunities for people who may engage less with the arts such as children with special educational needs and those in areas of high economic deprivation. Our work with young people with SEND informs all of our practice in helping us to develop new ways to communicate.


Working with two associate artists and a brilliant  team of freelance artists, our strong relationships with partner organisations such as museums, schools & theatre companies are at the heart of our work.
