We are a theatre company ideal for the heritage industry. We write and perform plays that are subject and site specific.
We are experienced professional actors, historical interpreters, educators and providers of bespoke historical theatre, drawing on a wide range of styles.
About Time Will Tell
We are passionate about history and theatre and our aim is to provide audiences with a sense of the drama of history, but a history that is relevant to them.
We carefully and sensitively research before creating our work but our aim is always to amuse and provoke our audiences to want to know more. Our audiences are never simply passive bystanders, they are active participants immersed in the stories we present and encouraged to express their views.
