Last One Standing Theatre Company was started for one main reason, to share with the world, challenging, inspiring, insightful stories that are just screaming to be told.
The theatre is a place that helps us reflect and say the things that we may not know how to say. The stage is such a magical place, it's a place of growth, a place of expression, it's a place where real magic really can happen right in front of your eyes! This is what we want, we want to capture that magic and take you on a journey to another place. We want you to ask yourselves questions, reflect on this world we live in. For L.O.S.T the theatre is one of the only things in this world that doesn't lie . There is no shying away and hiding from what is happening on the stage - both as a performer and as an audience member and THAT is something that inspires the crap out of us!
We promise to dedicate ourselves to producing strong thought provoking work, with passionate, professional artists and professional production values. We pride ourselves on striving towards maintaining a balance of equality in the theatre and we look forward to showing you what we can make.
