The company has provided workshops and developed work with young people at the BAC and the Lyric Hammersmith, as well as on tour around the UK and internationally. All company members are experienced teachers and workshop leaders. Between them they have previously worked in education for Central School of Speech and Drama, the Young Vic Education Department and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.
