The beating heart of our programme is our work on stage. We commission bold and adventurous new writing to create theatre that is as urgent in its staging as its social commentary. ThickSkin has worked with celebrated British playwrights, such as Nicola McCartney, Kieran Hurley and Davey Anderson, to stage small and mid scale productions, in theatres and in communities across the world.
"The staging is as turbulent and as knife-edge as Kastrati’s life itself."
