Strangemen & Co. 
was created as a venue for great storytelling. 

Its the story that drives our methods, our designs, our passion, and the story that we strive to serve. We seek to foster and encourage collaboration between multi-talented, multi-disciplinary artists, and to provide an artistic home for up-and-coming theatre-makers. 

We look to be innovative and to mine unexpected sources in our design, direction and production. So long as our story inspires us stay up late and wake up early, so long as we have enough cardboard and hot glue, we will tell it. 

Are you a StrangeM(a)n or Woman? We hope for this collaboration to grow, and to bring more artists into the fold. Interested in any of our current projects, and wanna join? Do you have an idea for a project that you would like collaborate with the StrangeMen on? If so, shoot us an email ( We love getting email. Makes us feel fancy.

Take a look around... there's plenty to see!
