Theatre Royal Stratford East opened in 1884 and amongst many chapters in its incredible history was the home of the legendary Theatre Workshop company led by Joan Littlewood. Now under the leadership of Artistic Director Kerry Michael, Theatre Royal Stratford East is committed to creating new work that connects with its diverse local population by giving space to voices traditionally unheard on stage.

PPP partnered with Theatre Royal Stratford East on Cultural Warriors and supported Kerry Michael’s sabbatical in Brazil in 2012-3, brokering the connection with Rio de Janeiro’s Festival Home Theatre that led to a new Home Theatre Festival at Theatre Royal Stratford East and an international collaboration and exchange that has been active since 2013.
