About

We make theatre that’s bold, immersive, fun and playful. There’s no formula to our work, but the audience is always at the heart of everything we make. We hope to make theatre that inspires, moves and creates conversation and brings people together. The Six Twenty is an Associate Company of Live Theatre a ground-breaking new writing theatre based in Newcastle.

We tour throughout the UK to theatres, outdoor spaces and unexpected places. The collaborative nature of theatre, and working with cross-disciplinary artists, is central to our work and we work with an ever-changing ensemble of performers, writers, creatives and theatre makers.

Current and recent work includes FANS, which won the Bridging the Gap Award for New Work in 2016, and will re-tour in 2018.  Mixtape our innovative cult comedy / music quiz show which is based at Live Theatre and tours throughout the UK. Breakfast Hearts / Choirplay a double bill of piercingly funny plays written by Robin French who wrote BBC sitcom Cuckoo.
