Theatre Company

Hello and welcome to Greyscale,

Here you can find more about our work, artists and companies we work with and our future plans. From our base in Newcastle we make and tour reimagined versions of classic texts and the boldest new writing we can find.

If you would like to get in touch with us you can visit our Facebook or Twitter page, or use one of contacts from our contact page (email, contact form or even a letter!)


We are running a short workshop session to test new exercises and warm up approaches and we are looking for a few performers that might be interested in spending couple of hours with us.

We will do a long warm up (45 min or so) and then try a few new exercises that the company would like to develop for future projects. This is not an audition or development rehearsal for particular project, but if you are free and would like some exercise come and join us.

​You can find all info and how to apply on our TRAINING page.

“Pubs are pubs mate, it’s coin as old as time… you don’t need to worry about us.”


From the night she is born on the floor of a working men’s pub, Amy sees it all.


Brought up in the arms of a tough-loving community, Amy is their future – and their only hope. But beyond the laughter, the songs, the bar stool politics and the endless late nights what is it that Amy truly wants? And how far will she go to get it?


Spanning twenty years, Shandyland is a story of life, love, death and drink at the heart of a small, northern, family-run pub, and a shout of frustration from an abandoned working class community.
