Magnetic North Theatre Company was formed in 2014 as somewhere for people of marginalised backgrounds (specifically people experiencing poverty, trans and LGBTIQ people, people with disabilities and people with mental illness) to tell stories that are often ignored in mainstream media. We’ve made 1-2 new works every year including the award-winning Cassandra and The Boy Doll, highly acclaimed #metoo response Medusa, and the audience-sourced verbatim piece Letters I Never Sent. We are a dynamo group that specialises in blending classic texts with contemporary themes, and doing work in non-traditional venues. Our style is conversational and accessible, with a focus on creating ‘art without artifice’.

Artemis Green is a queer artist, radio host and content creator who founded Magnetic North Theatre Company in 2014 as a response to the disappointing lack of trans, queer and intersectional voices in mainstream media. Their aim is to turn marginalisation into art, and offer creative ownership to people whose stories are often overlooked. Artemis enjoys long-form devising processes and getting caught in the rain.
