TELLING STORIES TO MAKE THE WORLD LESS SH*T

Theatre for geeks. Inspired by movies, pop-culture, and big ideas to make the world a little bit less sh*t.  

 

We are an award-winning Hull theatre company, commissioning provocative and playful writers and some of the best artists across the UK to create work that playfully discusses big ideas to broker vital conversations.

 

We're inspired by Pixar, Image Comics, Netflix, Middle Child Theatre, John McGrath, Joss Whedon, Joan Littlewood, and Brecht.

 

Our dream is to develop a theatre audience for the Netflix generation. An audience that will be as excited for a night in their local theatre as they would be at the cinema or a stand-up comedy gig.

Silent Uproar is a supported company of Hull Truck Theatre, supported by the Hull Independent Producer Initiative (HIPI) and have been part of New Diorama Theatre’s Supported Company Scheme (2016-2017).

ABOUT SILENT UPROAR

​Formed in 2013 on the top floor of our local pub, since then we've gone on to become a 'Supported Company' of Hull Truck Theatre and an 'Emerging Company 2016-2017' of New Diorama Theatre in London. Receiving support and building relationships with institutes in Hull, such as Hull City Council, Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Hull Trains, and even Hull’s beloved American Chip Spice company.

 

We aim to find alternative ways to engage new audiences in the city by bringing some of the best new writers and artists from across the UK to Hull. ​The company is run by a core team of members, and also have a series of regular collaborators and associates that work with us on a project-by-project basis.
