Dirty Protest: Award-winning Welsh theatre

Launched in 2007, the award-winning Dirty Protest Theatre has worked with more than 200 Welsh writers, staging new sell-out plays in theatres and alternative venues, from pubs and clubs, to kebab shops, hairdressers and a forest!

Winner of 2013 Best Production Wales Critics Choice at the Theatre Critics of Wales awards for the premiere of Katherine Chandler's Parallel Lines.

Alongside our full length productions, the core of our activity are our Dirty Protest shorts nights. We put on established AND wannabe writers on the same platform, providing opportunities for writers, directors and actors. 

We work in collaboration and are proud to work with partners including the Royal Court theatre, the Almeida theatre, Traverse Edinburgh, Soho Theatre, Sherman, Theatr Clwyd, National Theatre Wales, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, Latitude Festival, Festival No.6, Troyfest and many more.
