Weʼve raised £0 to Help Fund the PurpleDoor.
- Closed on Wednesday, 21st October 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We first started life as a theatre company, PurpleCoat, based in Liverpool since 2008. We didn’t like the way theatre excluded people from working-class communities, and so we set about creating theatre that was engaging, relevant and routed in Scouse identity. We produced more than 30 productions across the next decade, working on everything from Shakespeare to Willy Russell, always with our own unique stamp.
In 2014, we formed our Young Actors Company, which was the first step towards us taking up a much more proactive role in our communities. We gained funding from the ArtsCouncil and worked with hundreds of young people across the region – many have now gone on to train and star across the industry, and we’re dead proud of each of them.
Opening our own venue has been a long ambition and one which we are determined to get right. We’ve got high ambitions for showing how theatre can be more affordable, more relatable, and more useful to the people it’s supposed to serve. We’re thrilled you’re coming on this chapter with us.
