Pilot Theatre are an international touring theatre company based in York, UK. They’re committed to creating high quality mid-scale theatre for younger audiences, and will be many people’s very first encounter with this form.
Based at York Theatre Royal, UK, since 2002, they are one of very few national touring mid-scale companies to be based outside London and are therefore able to offer unique training and work opportunities for artists and young people in mid-scale touring that they may be unable to get anywhere else in the region.
Pilot also make work outside of traditional theatre buildings, where their projects pursue a relationship with audiences that is often playful, interactive and participatory.
They are always curious about our ongoing and changing relationship with technology, and often explore this theme.
Across all of their projects they seek to create a cultural space where young adults can encounter, express and interrogate big ideas, powerfully relevant to our lives right now.
Pilot Theatre is also connected with the University of York’s DC Labs for the PlayOn! project.
