Purple Theatre in Derby

About Us

Theatrical Diversity

We celebrate non binary values in race and gender through performance and art.

We are human beings, not categories.
Purple Theatre look to joyously spread the message of inclusivity and positivity through art, culture and engagingly entertaining theatre.


Our aim is to always achieve excellence in all we do and create a recognised platform for people of colour, gender queer and LGBTQ artists. We started as Purple Theatre in Derby but now reach out across the nation. We go into the community with workshops in Derby and across the country.


Purple Theatre are proud to announce that having recently scratched our new show BOXES at Derby Theatre, we will be premiering the show at Brighton Fringe in 2018. Keep up to date with more news on Twitter and Facebook.

Latest news is that BOXES is a proud recipient and will be supported by
