We are ThickSkin...
ThickSkin creates innovative and exciting theatre.
The company was formed by Neil Bettles and Laura Mallows in 2010 and quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies, producing award-winning productions, commissioning new writing and touring worldwide.
We aim to unearth new talent and engage established artists in the creation of new work. We nurture and enable them to take risks and test new ways of working. Our productions provide critical exposure and a springboard for artists ready to take a leap. In doing so, we support the sector by finding, commissioning and showcasing diverse talent.
We hope to reach and inspire audiences through our distinctive physicality and cinematic style. The company is based in Manchester and makes work across the UK.
