We’re Boundless Theatre which is the new name for Company of Angels. We produce new plays for audiences of 15–25 year olds and tour these around the UK and internationally. Our new name and the work we are making is motivated by the ambition to create relevant theatre for diverse audiences.
This is an extraordinary time for young people, here in the UK and around the world. A whole generation now has access to stories, people and ideas in an informal, innovative, and incredibly social way. We want to connect our work to this fast moving culture and learn from the unique and diverse ways that young adults experience storytelling and communicate ideas globally.
We are already working closely with an Advisory Group of 15–25 year olds who will keep us in check, provoke us and share in the making of our work. You can see them in the photo below, they represent our audience and our artists and are the future of this company.
We are now working in partnership with more theatres, schools and universities here and across Europe than ever before and our International Theatre Club and Commissioners projects will test new ideas for how we empower through participation.
We are investing in a diverse future, now. We can’t wait to introduce you to the visionary artists we’re nurturing to be bold and who will make work for a young and fearless audience. First up is Glenn Waldron’s play,‘Natives’ which will be on stage next spring. We hope to see you there and can’t wait to start a conversation, exchange ideas and to be boundless together.

“Where are the grown-ups to do something, where are the grown-ups in this story?”
Three countries. Three teenagers. One average, life-altering day.
A young man battles with feelings of love and violence. Another is stuck with the image of someone being pushed from a rooftop. And a girl must choose between her friends and her conscience.
Natives is a rallying cry to a generation of unlikely heroes and celebrates coming of age online in a chaotic world.
Glenn Waldron’s first play,‘Forever House’ premiered at the Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth. A former Editor of i-D magazine, Glenn has written for a variety of publications including the New York Times, Vogue, W magazine, Wallpaper*, The Guardian, Another, Nylon and 10 Magazine and held various at-large positions include Contributing Menswear Editor for The Independent, Style Director for Arena and Contributing Features Editor at Fantastic Man magazine.
