All Things Considered Theatre create intimate, socially engaged and immersive experiences for a wide range of audiences.

What interests us is how real stories connect and engage audiences. At the heart of our performances is the invitation for spectators to become co-creators with their thoughts, stories and actions contributing to the unfolding narrative.

Our work aims to be a communal and meaningful experience for everyone involved

Pram Talks at birth festival

"BIRTH Festival, a hugely ambitious project that celebrates the unique power of the playwright and the potential for theatre to provoke debate and inspire action" Sarah Frankcom, Artistic Director, Royal Exchange Theatre

Control25 published

Sarah & Emma are thrilled to announce that one-to-one performance festival Control25 features in 'Experiencing Liveness in Contemporary Performance' edited by Matthew Reason and Anja Mølle Lindelof


most things are quiet

We are currently developing an exciting new performance in collaboration with artist Stuart Crowther. The piece deals with men's mental health and suicide, and will use multiple art forms to explore this tragic and taboo subject

Pram Talks, The Need To Keep Talking


We had such an overwhelmingly positive response to our Pram Talks performances, particularly in regards to there being a need for the honest conversations we captured to be available to all new parents, that we are looking at developing the performance further and hopefully bringing it to more local parks around Liverpool and beyond. We've even recently brought the performance indoors to the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester for the Birth Festival, so watch this space...

'Lost To The Streets' In Development


We've been privileged to work with young people, young women who have been exploited, parents of children who have been sexually exploited and service providers in the creation of our performance Lost to the Streets.

This immersive and interactive performance invites young people and school communities to take part in exploring themes of control, manipulation and choices directly associated with Child Sexual Exploitation.

We are grateful to all of those people who have shared their stories and experiences with us.

Waiting Room, whats next?


What we have found fascinating with our recent productions of Waiting Room has been the relationship between the performer, the audience and the performance space. A small venue, packed out, up close and personal to an incredibly engaging performer is theatre at its simplest and purest and Waiting Room seems to have delivered this in spades. We're interested in taking it forward to examine how this dynamic can be further explored; how shifts in emphasis of form, space and audience-performer relationship can change the nature of this show. After a sell out stint in Buxton and Salford, we aim to take the show on the road to interesting places and spaces in the new year; watch this space!
