Rejects Revenge Theatre Company


Rejects Revenge Theatre Company

Rejects Revenge is a professional touring theatre company in the United Kingdom.

History

Rejects Revenge was founded in 1990 by Ann Farrar, Tim Hibberd and David White. Much of their work begins as devised pieces, though they will generally have a script - usually by Tim Hibberd - by the time the production is shown to the public. Their work is often very physical, but uses its physicality for comic rather than dramatic effect.
