In adapting classic texts Prodigal look for the opportunities to implicate audiences in the action, moving beyond the traditional distance of audience and performer towards a much older tradition in which the audience really defines the performance on any given night. With this end in mind Prodigal’s work has moved from intimate in the round story telling through site specific adaptations of Jacobean tragedy and into dramatising theatre history itself. The company’s approach to text is both rigorous and physical, cutting apart the classics and montaging new scripts through the combination of the old with the entirely new. The company has always taught alongside performing, and specialises in engaging at-risk communities. Some of our best work has arisen from provocation so if you have a challenge or suggestion for us please do get in touch.
