Become a Supporter

You can become an Idiot along with us - and directly contribute to the creation of our work on and off stage. Our Idiot Supporter levels outline ways you can make a difference - from funding props and costumes used in research and development weeks, to bursary placements for emerging artists and directors.

Our supporters have a close relationship with the company, artists we work with and our processes of creating playful, irreverent and comic theatre productions. Please click on one of the buttons below to be taken through to our JustGiving page, and support with an annual or monthly donation.

For more information about donating to the company, whether it be for a production or for our work with emerging artists and Taught by an Idiot projects, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Jenni Grainger (Executive Producer) on 020 7407 4123.
