This website is an archive and a celebration of the work of Ragroof Theatre from 2003-2012

Ragroof Theatre specialised in site-specific and outdoor performances that engaged, inspired and collaborated with communities.

After a wondrous journey making theatre, dancing, playing, performing and creating community inspired projects nationally and internationally, spanned over nine years, Ragroof Theatre came to a natural end.

We would like to thank all the people who have inspired us, laughed with us, supported us and made our experience one that we will always treasure. Those memories have shaped and informed our life’s landscape, as individuals and as a family.

We felt that it was the right time to look towards new horizons. Please do contact us on the email addresses below for new project possibilities in the future.

Luan Blake will be galvanising her own practise, including new projects and collaborations, personal development, and freelance directing, dramaturgy and project management.

Anna Symes continues to work as an actor and dancer with The Ragroof Players and other companies, she also works as in independent theatre producer/practitioner based in Margate, Kent.

The Ragroof Players formed by Marion Duggan, Ivan Fabrega, Matthew Blacklock and Dorothy Max Prior continue to host the famous Ragroof Tea Dances nationally and tour theatre projects Shall We Dance? Encore! and Bridges y Puentes. The Ragroof Players create performance projects and bespoke events that celebrate social dance and popular theatre, both contemporary and historic.

It’s been a pleasure and we look forward to hearing from you in the future.
