Founded in 2013, we are made up by staff and friends of the University of Kent and currently put on one staged radio play per year, and two productions per year at the Gulbenkian Theatre in Canterbury. 


Our members are from all walks of life with varying levels of experience in theatre. Anyone can join and get involved, and we warmly welcome both performing and non-performing members. We hold regular socials and lunches and have loads of fun doing what we love.
