‘If you want to see the future of British theatre now, then Coney is one of the companies to watch…’
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
‘Artists such as Coney are where the real potential of immersive theatre lies…it demonstrates a tangibly different offering to ‘traditional’ fourth wall.’
Duncan Gates, Exeunt Magazine
Welcome to Coney. We are interactive theatre makers – creating games, adventures and play where people can choose to take a meaningful part. Our work takes place anywhere that people gather; in theatres, schools, museums, on the streets and online and always follows the principles of adventure, curiosity, and loveliness.
Led by Coney HQ – a dynamic team of four, we power projects made by bespoke teams of makers assembled from a wider network. We’re supported by a band of 12 associates who are leaders in their field, and feed the overall company manifesto. If you are interested in making play with us, then you are welcome to join the Network.
Our 2018 Programme Announcement is here! Explore what we’ll be up to in the rest of this year here.

The REMOTE Tour has come to an end in Derby Theatre and The Hub in Leeds. It played in 10 towns & cities across the UK and we have been blown away by the audience response. To find out more about the show click here.
A Game of Legacy has been created by Tassos with jedi master of play Bernie De Koven as he nears the end of his life. The game has gone out to our friends who gave to the Kickstarter campaign to support the devising and delivery of this game, and to build a community around Bernie’s playful legacy.
We’ve kicked off our Network Exchanges. An Exchange is a workshop where everyone is present to play and exchange pieces of practice, and is a wonderful playground for developing games and ideas. If you’re an artist or maker and like the sound of this, we invite you to join the Network of Coney and connect with like-minded, lovely people.
And discover what we’re up to every week by reading our blog. From tour date announcements to musings over amoebic friendship simulators, introductions of new Coney projects to insights into research and development, we want to bring you with us on the journey.
