Marie Hamilton and Christian Loveless set up District Theatre in early 2019 out of endless tube conversations on the state of British theatre, politics and Alan Partridge.
We want to make theatre that excites, that enrages, that makes people laugh, cry and come out on the other side somehow more able to connect with other humans.
That’s what we believe theatre is for.
We make work that is often silly, sometimes political, and which always searches for the grey area. We like contradictions, happy rage and teary silliness and jokes that come out of being really pissed off.
Andy Whyment, Artistic Director of Squint Theatre, said of 'we don't have to do this' , the company's first show:
“'we don’t have to do this' is an essential look at power and powerlessness in one of the most extraordinary political moments in British history. It is playful, political and honest... a fascinating piece.”
