About Us

Pilot Theatre is one of the UK’s leading touring theatre companies. Our vision is to produce work that sparks passion and ignites debate across the globe through our performances and digital networks. 

We create pioneering contemporary work celebrating diversity in all its forms with particular relevance to young people and the issues they face in their lives.  We nurture emergent talent and aspiring artists from all walks of life and give them the opportunity to share their voice and their art with the world. 

We are based at York Theatre Royal, and have been since 2002. We are one of very few national touring mid-scale companies to be based outside London and are therefore able to offer unique training & work opportunities for artists and young people in mid-scale touring that they may be unable to get anywhere else in the region.

Working with excellent established artists we nurture emergent talent and work with leading practitioners and diverse teams across all our platforms of delivery.
