Seeking out, capturing, documenting and sharing stories from the heart of the community
In June 2017, 18 guests were invited to share a communal Goan meal in the heart of Boston. A mosaic of cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities and political ideologies came together as we began a journey to reveal what makes a Bostonian today.

In a collaboration with award winning theatre and film Director/Producer/Writer Alan Lyddiard, New Perspectives' ambitious new creative project sets out to be all embracing, growing from an intimate meal to a large-scale live performance in June 2018.

Welcome

New Perspectives is an East Midlands based national touring theatre company, with a specialty in creating dynamic performances for rural audiences. We make ambitious and original theatre, focusing on new writing, adaptations and revivals, which we present in community settings and venues nationally and internationally. We provide career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and manage the rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts . 

EXCITE, CHALLENGE & ENGAGE
One of the many things we do is to turn village halls into professional theatre spaces.
