"When I became Artistic Director of the Almeida in 2013 my aim was to make brave new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre and of the world around us. That work takes many forms but, at the heart of everything we do, is the desire to bring together the most exciting artists to take risks; to provoke, inspire and surprise our audiences.
The Almeida is a small theatre with an international reach. From transfers to the West End and Broadway, international tours taking us as far as Singapore and Australia and on-screen adaptions that take our work into people’s homes and local cinemas. Our work regularly reaches audiences well beyond our four walls.
We’re proud to be a part of the UK’s creative economy, punching above our weight in terms of our artistic and economic contribution to one of this country’s great success stories.
However, even when our auditorium is sold out, ticket sales can only provide 40% of the funding we need to survive. We consequently need to raise more than £2 million each year from individuals, trusts and corporate partners who share our passion.
I look forward to welcoming your company into the Almeida to become part of our future – it’s going to be exciting."
Rupert Goold, Artistic Director
