The Real People Theatre Company

 A women's theatre company based in Yorkshire


The Real People Theatre is a women's theatre company, founded in 1999 by Sue Lister & Ann Murray. Our casts alter year by year.

We are now a charity (04156840) and a company limited by guarantee (1088860).

Since 2000 we have created and presented shows for York International Women's Week each year, kindly hosted by York St John University.

Ordinary women take to the stage with their life experiences and we move from the personal to the universal, often exploring social issues.

Over the years the Real People Theatre has worked with a play off the shelf, 8 cast collaborations, 2 forum theatre productions, life stories, readers' theatre, image theatre, a poetry workshop, and a playwright who devised a script with the company - an exciting diversity!
