About Us

Our times are our inspiration. We bring work rarely seen on the Welsh stage to the forefront of our theatrical landscape.

Combining contemporary playwrights with boundary crossing artists, musicians and emerging talent, we create innovative pieces of theatre that entertain, inspire debate, and reflect on our here and now.

Waking Exploits is Wales’ only producer-led touring theatre company, bringing the best contemporary plays to the stage, often for the first time.

Working alongside contemporary playwrights, we strive to bring the best work from established and emerging talent to the stages of Wales and beyond. We create ambitious projects in theatres across Wales, making work that is relevant, thought provoking, innovative and exciting.

Get Involved

We want to maximise opportunities for our audiences, participants and production teams to experience the best that theatre can offer. As such we are always looking to meet new people who want to get involved with our work.

We offer a wide range of activities that complement our productions including: talks, workshops and meet and greets. Contact us if you’d like more information.

All of our casting breakdowns are posted on this site and on Spotlight.
We think the best way to get to know actors is to see them at work, as such we try our very best to see anything we are invited to. If you are in a production that you would like us to see please contact us.
