Give It A Name Theatre emerged from a pile of dung in 2007. Fully formed. No one remembers how or why.


We are a loose collection of individuals: every production is like a new album.


Each production begins with a seed: a recording, a book, a story, a person, a provocation, an image, a play. The form emerges from the material. What we discover dictates the journey.


We make our work for audiences. In nightclubs, on streetcorners, in back alleys, in headphones, on the internet, or in theatres. We make work that is engaged, located, immersive and playful. Tomorrow we will make something else.


Artistic Director: John Norton – actor, director, producer and crate digger
Co-­founder: Matthew Wright – visuals, animations, game design and drum sounds
