Our Future

Tara Theatre drives change within the UK theatre landscape. We challenge our industry and address the lack of diversity and representation within it. We create exceptional, innovative and politically charged theatre for now.


Under Abdul Shayek’s artistic leadership we have developed an artistic model to create a contemporary, democratic space with co-creation at its heart.  

We see Tara Theatre as a creative hub for a wide-ranging community of artists and audiences in South Wandsworth and beyond. Our work explores the complexities of our world, promoting South Asian voices and artists, creating exciting new narratives, new ideas and new forms. 

We believe everyone we work with is an artist and has an important and creative voice to be amplified, whether they are part of our local community, younger creatives, emerging talents or established professionals. 

We will continue to grow our work and presence across the UK and celebrate our global community with international collaborations.
