Chalk Line Theatre is a multi-award winning company based in Luton which tours nationally and internationally. They are Associate Artists at The Lion and Unicorn Theatre London, as well as a Graduate Emerging Company of The New Diorama Theatre London.
Chalk Line’s work is both thematically and visually ambitious, receiving great critical acclaim on their approach to contemporary theatre-making.
As a company they look to experiment with form, by tackling socio-political subject matters in an innovative way that is ultimately challenging yet entertaining. Chalk Line’s work is often the result of lots of research and development and periods of devising with playfulness at the heart of the company's approach. Their shows combine physical expression, ensemble narratives and intricately bold designs, and are often multi-disciplinary drawing from theatre, film, music and dance.
Beyond the stage Chalk Line provide free self-producing workshops to working class artists throughout the year in collaboration with the charity COMMON and The Pleasance Futures Trust. They deliver workshops in schools and youth theatre groups, whilst also providing free/discounted theatre trips for young creatives to see their work, partnering with organisations such as Revoluton Arts, Rhubarb Speech and Drama, NGYT and The Black Ticket Project.
We are hugely proud to be a Graduate Emerging Company of The New Diorama Theatre, an Associate Company of The Lion and Unicorn Theatre
and an Associate Company of Next Generation Youth Theatre.
