Liverpool’s Unity Theatre showcases cutting-edge, radical theatre in its intimate spaces. Celebrated artists perform alongside emerging local talent, exploring some of the most vital issues of our time.
At the heart of theatre in Liverpool is Unity, offering an programme rife with acclaimed artists, emerging stars and subject matter that pursues the very recesses of politics, society and the self.
The theatre formed in the 1930s as the Merseyside Left Theatre, rebranding as the Merseyside Unity Theatre in 1944 and starting a reputation of radical and experimental theatre.
