Our mission

We make fearlessly theatrical work that presents unique perspectives on the most talked about stories.

We are an award-winning company that make ensemble-driven theatre through devising and new writing.

We research investigatively, develop collaboratively and rehearse playfully, presenting performances that provoke debate.

We create work that is epic, empathetic and surprising.

We believe a conversation can change the world and that theatre spaces are where those conversations can take place.


  1. Our investigative projects involve extensive primary research and a wide range of collaborators.

  2. With commissions we empower writers to create provocative new plays and adventurous adaptations.

  3. Through rapid response we stage our most immediate, debate-stirring work and forge new relationships with writers.

  4. We amass and share research through workshops, discussions and broadcast to encourage conversation.

  5. Our education programme empowers people to make theatre of their own using our practice.


Squint was founded at the University Of Reading in 2009 by Artistic Director, Andrew Whyment. We have been working with writers and producing new work since 2010. Today we are London-based, but we work internationally.
