Pentabus is the nation's rural theatre company. We are the only professional theatre company in the UK whose vision is singularly rural. We tour newly commissioned plays about the contemporary rural world to audiences in village halls, fields, festivals and theatres, telling stories with local relevance and national impact. 

We have hosted a writer in residence since 2014 and they have gone on to be commissioned by the Royal Court, Birmingham Rep, Royal Welsh College, the Bush, Nottingham Playhouse and HighTide. 

We are also a champion for rural young people aged fourteen to twenty-five. Pentabus Young Company is our new initiative offering workshops, master classes, work experience and mentorships, as well as the opportunity to join our Young Writers' Group which has been running for seven years. 

These areas of our work and other programmes are made possible with the support of a number of dedicated Trusts and Foundations.
