“Coney are pushing at the boundaries of theatre and of technology”
Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor

“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 a collection of makers creating interactive theatre, games and adventures where people can choose to take a meaningful part. Our mission is to spark change through play, always following the principles of adventure, curiosity, and loveliness. Our work takes place anywhere that people gather; in theatres, schools, museums, on the streets and online.

Powered by a small team at HQ, projects are made by bespoke teams of makers assembled from a wider network, including our Associates and the Guild of Coney. If you are interested in making play with us, then you are welcome to join our Network.
