About Us

The mission of Alex Read Theatre is to promote live performances.

We offer opportunities to develop and explore thought-provoking collaboration processes in staging original works.
Contemporary life leads to different ways of thinking, manifesting a strong desire for change in the form of social, political and economic reforms. It’s time for theatre to catch up with our new age, become more useful to contemporary society and soar beyond the violent melodramas of the past.
Furthermore, artists, technicians, and administrators involved in the conservation of the craft of live performances need to be properly honoured; a complete cultural change is required. It’s time to reclaim the role of theatre, one that will more closely reflect and become part of our life. It’s time to change and the time is now!
