Welcome to the Claybody Theatre Official Website

Claybody Theatre were thrilled to return to live performances in June 2021 with an extended version of our 2020 lockdown hit, Greenwood Dreams. For two nights only the magnificent Stoke Minster hosted our ancient forest setting, and the through-sung story of a young girl who escapes the pressures of lockdown through a vivid and inspiring dream. 

If you would like to support us in making new work, like Greenwood Dreams or our audio podcast, The Call, one of the ways you can support us is by making a one-off donation.

We are delighted to share that we have been awarded a grant as part of the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund, this funding will allow us to bring a live performance to Stoke-On-Trent this Summer. More details will follow soon, on the website and on our social media platforms.

Many thanks to Martin Tideswell, and his award-winning team at The Sentinel and SOTLive, for joining us during our last production, The D Road. Thanks to their incredible support, and for creating this fab film where we get a chance to talk about what Claybody means to us. 

Our work is rooted in the community we serve.

All of our projects are inspired by the people and city of Stoke-on-Trent.
