Our programme

BUDCo's Mission is, 'Entertain, Educate, Challenge'.  We produce classical works, including Shakespeare for modern audiences; present challenging shows on social issues such as mental health, racism and alcohol misuse; and showcase new writing through premiering plays by local playwrights.  We are keen to encourage new acting, directing and technical theatre talent.
