‘Cap-a-Pie theatre company just make it all very enjoyable, like somehow they just make you so happy!’

Year 5 pupil 

Cap-a-Pie means: from head to foot or armed for battle. We say it Cap (like you put on your head) a Pie (like you eat).

To us Cap-a-Pie means being a theatre company that inspires thinking and learning. Since 1996 we’ve specialised in bringing people together to take part in a democratic creative process.

We work with lots of different people and types of organisations to create touring theatre and community and education projects. We partner with those engaged in thinking, learning and discovery including communities, educators, researchers and scientists.

To find out more about what we do get in touch or check out our current productions and projects.
