Pentabus Theatre

Pentabus is a contemporary theatre company, producing original plays about the rural world for local and national audiences. Pentabus has been collaborating with theatre makers and communities in Shropshire, across the country, and internationally for nearly 40 years.  Based on a farm in Shropshire, we make a real commitment to the creative health of the countryside, encouraging artists to draw from it and urging communities to participate in it.

We make theatre that digs deep into the psyche of the English countryside. Our shows are playful, political and compassionate, offering rural audiences work that is made especially for, and speaks directly to, them. We then take these plays on the road, touring around the country, telling stories that are born locally, but resonate nationally. Our productions turn up at festivals, in fields and in theatres, reaching our audience wherever they may be.
