Associate Company

Hydrocracker produces what leading theatre critic Michael Billington has called ‘site-specific theatre with a purpose’, creating unique performances in unusual spaces. 

Standout productions include: The New World Order – a chilling promenade of five short plays by Harold Pinter at Brighton Town Hall (Brighton Festival 2007 & 2011); The Erpingham Camp by Joe Orton on Brighton Pier (Brighton Festival 2009); and Shakespeare a la Carte in Pizza Express (Brighton Festival 2010). 

Hydrocracker has now collaborated with Brighton Dome to create a new Youth Theatre – Firecracker – which will give local teenagers a chance to learn about acting from Hydrocracker’s team of professional actors and have the opportunity to work on future productions.
