Common Players

Common Players is an arts charity formed in 1989. It was set up to create engaging performances for and with people in communities around the Westcountry. Over the years activities have ranged from outdoor family performances, through participative and educational projects, to indoor touring works about issues and subjects that face rural communities.


We have created more than 25 original productions, often commissioning local writers and employing other professional theatre artists, and at times performing to audiences totalling over 15,000 in any one year.

We work in response to opportunities that exist, and we also create new initiatives which we believe to be important, partnering with other arts organisations in order to deliver our ambitions.


We value giving access to theatre to those who would not normally see themselves as consumers of theatre art, both as audience members and participants.
