Unity Theatre, Liverpool Events
Unity Theatre is Liverpool’s small-scale theatre with big ambitions. Their programme of presented and produced work is edgy, radical and unashamedly contemporary, while their talent development programmes have aided the establishment of many of the UK’s top touring companies including Told by an Idiot, AD Infinitum and Kaboodle. On 7 January Unity Theatre temporarily closed its doors to the public to undergo a £845,000 redevelopment project, reopening in May 2017. The redevelopment of the Hope Place venue is driven by the needs of Unity’s artists and audiences and is the first major work to be carried out since the previous redevelopment in 1998. It will also ensure that Unity Theatre has a strong digital profile and is an environmentally sustainable venue.
