About Visible Fictions:
For 29 years we have been creating innovative and dynamic theatrical experiences and creative learning projects for young people of all ages and adults.  You can find our work on stage and screen, and in parks, boats, bikes, libraries, schools and wherever we can make them happen!  We take these stories all over the world.  Our aim is to get people thinking, talking, sharing and creating.  We do this by mixing things up and turning stories on their head, as a result no two Visible Fictions productions are alike but all guarantee an equally memorable and powerful experience.
