Imagine If Theatre is a Theatre Company and Registered Charity founded by Francesca Joy in 2014. The theatre we create is based on the world around us comprising real stories from real people. We aim to create work that is inspiring, entertaining, thought provoking and unashamedly honest for intimate audiences.
We aim to be truthful in our artistic processes and productions, as authenticity is ingrained in our work. We also engage with those who have direct, personal experience of social problems in Britain through our theatre productions and workshop packages. Consequently, we place those without a voice at the forefront of each Imagine If production.
We show excellence in the way we engage with artists, audiences and participants, making an active difference to their lives through theatre. We do this through supporting those most excluded from society and delivering art to make a long-lasting positive impact.
As well as our theatre productions, Imagine If also runs a range of drama based workshops across the UK, specific to each demographic we work with. These demographics include: offenders, ex-offenders, those with mental health issues, addicts and recovering addicts, young adults in the care system and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our range of drama based workshops have been piloted throughout 2014-2017 to test the methodology and outcomes and these are run by experienced practitioners.
