The Wrong Crowd is a theatre company where designers and writers/directors co-create work. We integrate the power of the visual from the start of the process and tell stories that matter in a magical way. We choose to tell stories with emotional depth and edge, and tell them in a way which will surprise, ignite the imagination and create a sense of aliveness in our audience. We’re based in Devon and tour our work nationally and internationally.
