We’re pleased to announce that theatre company Up In Arms have joined the cohort of artists produced by the team at Farnham Maltings. Up In Arms was founded by the director Alice Hamilton and the writer Barney Norris, who grew up together making theatre in Wiltshire. Their plays have been seen in woods, schools, hospices, village halls and many of the UK’s leading theatres.
On talking about the new collaboration, Barney Norris noted ‘We’re delighted to strike up this new relationship with Farnham Maltings. After years of envying the producing relationship some of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies have enjoyed with this organisation, it’s a coup to be joining their family. This new partnership will give Up In Arms access to networks and expertise that can exponentially develop our work, and ground us in best practice that will help us transition towards a sustainable, thriving business model. We’ve committed ourselves to telling and touring the stories of life on these islands, and finding a way to root ourselves in a region with so many stories to tell and so many audiences to speak to will galvanise our work, onstage and off.’
Up In Arms has featured in Theatre of the Year lists in the Times, the Guardian, the Evening Standard and many others, winning awards and international acclaim for their work. You can learn more about the company by visiting their website.
