Board Members & Trustees

Interplay Theatre was founded on the streets of Leeds in 1970 and over the past 50 years, it has grown to become the National Sensory Theatre, the leading name in immersive theatre which is a way of making theatre which places you at the centre of the experience, embedded in the world of the play.

We are now looking for some new trustees to join the company, to play a key part in shaping the charity’s future, its work, and its connections with its communities.


There are multiple strands to our activity:

  • Developing and touring theatre productions nationally to Special Educational Needs and mainstream schools as well as community and theatre spaces.
  • A venue for all our work alongside other artists to be supported, shared, and celebrated, embedded in our community of Armley, Leeds.
  • Digital innovators, using new technologies to tell stories and widen our reach.
  • A home for our community and local young people through our youth theatre programme, LS12 Theatre, Armley Peoples Theatre and hundreds of other projects


This is a key moment for Interplay Theatre, it is a period of growth with many exciting opportunities planned with national tours, expansion of our digital work as well as continuing the many opportunities and experiences for the community of Armley in Leeds where Interplay is based.


We are looking for people who can broaden our perspective and to help ensure Interplay continues to move forward maintaining its relevance all with a playful, curious, and challenging attitude.
