Black Lyrical Theatre


Lyrici Arts tour and create high quality Black theatre productions within Medway with the aim to explore and develop effective ways to share and celebrate cultural stories, engage audiences, and unite communities.

Part of this strand includes our HOMEWARD programme – an academy devised by Lyrici Arts for Black heritage artists.

Project Details

Lyrici Arts will present these shows within their base at The Glassbox Theatre in Gillingham, where they are an Associate Theatre Company. GlassBox Theatre believe in bringing the new, the diverse, the unique, the experimental, the controversial as well as some of the much loved favourites to the theatre & cinema audiences of Medway and beyond.

Lyrici Arts have been working closely with GlassBox over the years to programme in high quality shows for Medway and we are delighted that we now have a base to suggest alternative diverse and Black lyrical programming and to make work of our own under our own banner.
