Quarantine Home
1B, Basil Chambers

Quarantine was established in 1998 by directors Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea with designer Simon Banham. We make original theatre, performance and public events with and about the people who are in it. Whatever form it takes, our work begins and ends with the people in the room. Over the last 20 years, we've collaborated with a shifting constellation of artists, performers and people who've never done anything like this before. Our work seeks to create the circumstances for a conversation between strangers...

Quarantine’s work is researched, developed and delivered by a small team of people connecting with sometimes dozens of others.  We’re based in Manchester and take our work all over the world.
