Broken Leg Theatre - an award-winning, Brighton-based theatre company

Established in 2008 our company performed its first production in the basement of a small café and have since gone on to perform two home-grown plays at the Nightingale Theatre, the Hackney Empire and London’s Greenwich Theatre.

Broken Leg is currently funded by Art Council England to research our latest production, Three Generations. The project is supported in-kind by Greenwich Theatre, Leeds City Council and The Marlborough Theatre, Brighton, and will draw on the experiences of real women growing up in the UK over the last 100 years. The play will question if life is easier for women now or whether they face the same challenges as their mothers and grandmothers but in different guises. 

Our co-directors and writers, Anna Jefferson and Alice Trueman are currently touring the country speaking to women of all different demographics about their experiences of growing up in Britain.
