Recruiting new board members – Stan’s Cafe

Stan’s Cafe is looking for new board members to join the current team and work with an industrious and ambitious staff in achieving the company’s bold plans for the next few years.

Stan’s Cafe is an internationally acclaimed theatre company with a history of creating inventive and mind-stretching productions. The company uses theatre to boldly address timeless and contemporary themes and is happy to twist theatre out of shape in order to do so.

Along with a core of long term collaborators and associate artists, Artistic Director James Yarker’s theatrical experiments have led to Methuen commissioning a book Devising Theatre With Stan’s Cafe, due to be published in 2017.

2016 is the company’s 25th anniversary year, during which the company has collaborated with organisations including the RSC, Theater Freiburg, The REP Birmingham, Theaterfestival Basel, Artichoke.

The company’s sector leading creative learning programme, working in long-term relationships with five Birmingham partner schools, is the subject of a PhD studentship offered by the University of Warwick.

“… A company of real artistic innovators who always have new things to say and new ways 
of saying them”
