Stand & Be Counted Theatre

"A talented and charismatic company." - The Stage

Stand and Be Counted Theatre was founded to create works that tackle society’s most taboo issues head-on with unflinching heart and honesty. We believe deeply in the importance of theatre as a tool to promote social change and give voice to the unheard and under-represented in our society. We make campaign theatre that empowers audiences, participants and collaborators alike, to have their say.

SBC is a collaboration between theatre-maker Hannah Butterfield, writer and performer Rosie MacPherson and producer John Tomlinson. In 2016, SBC Theatre became the first ‘Theatre Company of Sanctuary.'  We are committed to making work with, about and for those seeking sanctuary in the UK and internationally.

SBC tour extensively throughout the UK with a proud record for welcoming new audiences to the theatre. Our work encompasses small-mid scale contemporary theatre, large-scale community performance projects, educational workshops, durational performances and bespoke outdoor performance.
