Geese Theatre Company is a team of actors and group workers who present interactive drama and conduct workshops, staff training and consultation within the Criminal Justice System. The company has an international reputation for innovative work with offenders and youth at risk and since 1987 has worked in more than 150 custodial institutions and with 42 probation areas. During this time, we have worked with more than 150,000 offenders and 30,000 other individuals.
We work internationally with:
- offenders in prison, on probation, or in mental health settings
- young people who are seen to be at risk of offending and who have offended
- professionals who work with these client groups
We provide a continually developing portfolio which includes:
- issue based performances
- groupwork inputs into a range of probation, prison, secure hospital and youth offending programmes
- workshops and residencies
- staff training events
- performances for Criminal Justice conferences
The company believes that drama is a powerful and effective vehicle for inviting individuals to examine their own behaviour and as a catalyst for promoting personal development and change.
Several of the company’s productions and some of its offending groupwork models are based on the work of Geese Theater USA which was founded in 1980 by the expatriate British director John Bergman, MA, RDT. Geese Theatre Company (UK) was established in 1987 by former US company member Clark Baim.
Geese Theatre Company is the trading name for Albatross Arts Project which is a registered charity (327563).
