Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.

Starbound Theatre is an emerging, international, London based theatre company exploring the theme of identity. Inspired by the words of Astrophysicist Carl Sagan, we aim to explore who and what we are - as individuals, actors, and members of society - through human-led stories found in classic, contemporary, and brand new writing. We aim to support and nurture diversity in our work, and endeavour to celebrate women's voices both on and off the stage.
