HighTide's mission is to stage the best new plays by emerging writers. 

HighTide playwrights are new, adventurous and diverse in terms of ethnicity, political philosophy, and socio-economic backgrounds.

HighTide awards playwrights with their first commission, and these plays are created in Suffolk through the renowned annual HighTide Festival in Aldeburgh.

We re-commission HighTide Festival writers and tour these productions across the UK.

Our programming influences the mainstream culture. Our productions are always about the here and now.

HighTide: Adventurous theatre for adventurous people.

Here is a brief HighTide history, and here is our production history.
