Glitter-filled Political Nights Out For A Younger Crowd
artdevdd.png

We are an award-winning theatre company creating fun nights out to engage a younger, funkier, and punkier crowd.

We tell relevant, daring, and bold stories created by exceptional northern playwrights and filled with riotous ideas (and really stupid jokes). Our shows are ridiculous and revolutionary events to welcome a younger audience to theatre shows and venues. So they can discuss difficult, challenging and taboo topics and have an excellent night out. Our shows empower people to make the world a better place through entertainment.  


We are based in Hull and are committed to making work in the North of England. We strive to make theatre affordable, accessible, and exciting for 16-25s; doing so will ensure theatre will be relevant to as many people as possible. We are a project-funded charity, an affiliated artist at Hull Truck Theatre and are supported by Hull City Council, East Riding Council, Garfield Weston Foundation and Arts Council England (through project grant funding).

 ABOUT SILENT UPROAR 
artdevPIG.png

Formed in 2013 on the top floor of our local pub, we have now gone on to be one of Hull’s leading touring companies (and have picked up a few awards along the way).  

 

Writers have always been crucial in creating this work, and we would not be where we are today without the exceptional writers we have worked with and been inspired by. Alongside creating and touring shows. Silent Uproar runs a year-round support programme for writers. We are determined to ensure there are as many opportunities for writers in the North of England as there are elsewhere in the country.

 

Silent Uproar is an Associate Company of the Barnsley Civic, and was previously an associate company of Hull Truck Theatre and has previously been supported by Hull City of Culture 2017 and New Diorama Theatre through their Supported Company Scheme (2016-2017).
