About Us

rack (rรขk)

1. A framework or stand in or on which to hold, hang, or display various articles
2. A device used to torture victims by stretching them beyond their natural limits
3. To think, i.e., to rack one's brains
4. A woman’s breasts
5. To strike a male in the groin with the knee

Racked is a new London based theatre collective. We are a group of like minded theatre practitioners who, after working together on several projects, have now formalised ourselves as a company.

If Andy Warhol and William Shakespeare got married and adopted a third-world child, we would be that child.

We believe that theatre need not have rules, as long as it’s good. We’re not seeking to define theatre or push our philosophy of what it should be, we just want to make challenging, exciting, entertaining, provoking theatre and have fun. Our work may draw from the current zeitgeist or from the structure of classical works, and has an emphasis on text-based new writing. As the company grows, the long term goal is for us to be a collective of artists across various mediums: music, visual art, and drama.

Current productions in development:

In addition to our work on stage, we are also dedicated to using our talents for good, by providing forums, workshops, and assistance throughout the community, from schools to corporations, and particularly amongst women in business and LGBT youth organisations.
