Sole Purpose Productions is a professional theatre company set up in 1997 to use the discourse of imagination to investigate and illuminate social and public issues. We aim to produce new theatre that contributes to social change, explores the dynamics of human relationships and promotes good relations. We bring art to the heart of the social, economic and creative life of communities locally, nationally and internationally.

We aim to bring professional theatre on contemporary and relevant issues to marginalised and hard to reach communities as well as mainstream theatre audiences. We value imagination, creativity, participation, access and inclusion. We aim to engage in cultural productions in the widest sense, continually expanding our artistic horizons.

Sole Purpose always work with key community or voluntary organisations in developing their productions and this means that they are acutely aware of all the key issues involved in whatever area they are focusing on. This kind of cutting edge drama is an essential ingredient for challenging and increasing people's awareness of complex and controversial issues.
