we believe in theatre as a space for everyone

Since day one, we’ve always strived to make our work as accessible as possible and we continue to look for new ways to break down barriers, sharing our work with a wide range of people.

Our Pay What You Can scheme applies to our all of our in-house productions, events and development programmes and is our way of lowering financial barriers, offering engaging and inspiring theatre experiences.

By signing up to our membership you’ll not only gain a greater access to our work but you‘ll also be helping us to offer our Pay What You Can scheme, bringing people together through theatre.

what you get

annual membership: £36 per year

  • free access to all of our in-house productions and events
  • opportunities to attend rehearsals and other behind-the-scenes experiences
  • an invitation to our annual members’ event

Free access

For £36 per year (that’s just £3 per month), you’ll get free access to all of our in-house productions and events – all you need to do is book in advance.

We produce at least one full play every year as well as other theatre events such as staged readings, one-off ensemble performances and our translation showcase throughout the year.

In some instances, such as when we take part in external festivals or co-productions, we may not be able to offer free access. Instead, we’ll always seek to offer discount codes and other special offers to our members.

Behind-the-scenes experiences

Once in a while, we’ll invite you to behind-the-scenes experiences such as play readings, rehearsals and ensemble training sessions, giving you an opportunity to get a glimpse of our creative processes and meet the teams behind our work.

Annual members’ event

Every year we host an event for our members to celebrate the community of individuals who support our work. In true Foreign Affairs style, the nature of the event will change every year but it could be a one-off performance, a film screening or a picnic in the park weather permitting.
