Quarantine Home
PO Box 573
M32 2BZ

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. for nearly 25 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...


Autumn. is an interval, like a theatre interval, but almost 2 hours long and full of conversation, expert voices, explorations of the past and predictions for the future.  It invites its audience to reflect on our place in history – and, of course, offers them refreshment…

Autumn. is presented as part of Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. a hugely ambitious piece of mass portraiture spanning the human lifecycle.
