About Us

At StrikeUp, we aspire to make theatre that you can’t stop talking about. We’re passionate about theatre as a platform for all people and over the years we hope to seek out and give voice to stories from all over the world. So far, we’ve been privileged and inspired to hear from Reading’s Elder community, interviewed extensively over the past 10 months, for our debut Arts Council funded show:


Alongside Silent Generation and our future theatre projects, StrikeUp are launching a podcast series, 'StrikeUp a Conversation', inviting listeners to engage in the debates that help shape our work. Follow us on twitter and keep an eye out for the first podcast, coming soon:


StrikeUp also run Acting Classes for adults in Reading, formerly the ‘Adult Acting Studio’ (adultactingstudio.co.uk), this summer will see the first season launch of 'StrikeUp Education.' For course details & enquiries about upcoming opportunities, please contact:
