Hey! We're Switch_MCR. We are a Manchester based theatre company creating new and exciting accessible work. Founded in 2018, by Ex-Royal Exchange Young Company members, we have grown to become one of the largest independent theatre companies in Greater Manchester.
We've worked hard on some pretty cool projects including Sense's of Responsibility (2022, 53two) Blue Moss (2022, 53two) Save Me A Seat Festivals (Ongoing) We Won't Fall (2020, International Anthony Burgess Foundation) and more. We're also regarded for our monthly Switch_Lab's that help develop new writing and voices in our region.
We're passionate about making our work accessible to all so we're raising money to help expand our Outreach projects, help pay external practitioners for these projects, and allow for us to provide unwaged tickets to people who may not be able to access our work. We're paying it forward!
Whilst our crowdfunding page is for all of the work we make, right now we're especially trying to raise funds for
- Production costs for our upcoming show, The Other Side
- Contributing towards payment for our cast and creatives for The Other Side
- Covering accessibility for all of the project we're currently working on (The Other Side, Switch_Lab etc...)
- Seed money to help us cover costs for developing our next season of projects
We would love your help to switch on Manchester's theatre scene and reimagine radically.
