Who Are We

TCT creates new and re-imagined work. Our aesthetic combines text-based theatre with highly theatrical scenography to create visually dynamic live performance. Stylistically different, TCT strives for politically, artistically charged responses to the pressing themes underpinning our lives within twenty-first century, global culture. Described as evocative, unorthodox, innovative, outstanding, TCT works inter-generationally, bringing together emerging and senior artists to create performances that explore our shared humanity. We preference new works and existing dramatic works that address issues of marginalisation and under-representation in society. We value courage, boldness, collaboration, welcome, diversity, creativity and respect.

Co-founded by Michael Beh and Peter Crees in 2017, TCT has produced Uncle Vanya (Magda Artz), The Quighting Time (Anywhere Festival), The Third Beauty (Springhill Reservoir) and Ghosts (Red Hill). Core members include Michael Beh, Adrienne Costello, Peter Crees, Lisa Hickey, Amanda McErlean, Helen Strube, Libby Wherrett, with associate artists Rhumer Diball, Lauren Roche, Bethany Scott, and Patrick Shearer.

GHOSTS is innovative…outstanding. The show is not only exciting but is difficult to fault.

A searing portrayal of heartbreak, intimacy and shattered dreams.
