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. 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...


There’s a batch of babies crawling around the stage, their mothers’ eyes on them.

There’s a group of pregnant women too and, inside them, some people who haven’t been born yet.

Spring. looks to the future and imagines what kind of lives might be about to be lived in the world we’re leaving behind.

Fuelled by incessant karaoke and a text built out of hundreds of awkward questions, Spring. asks about absence and presence and what it means to be hopeful.


Show me how you want it to be…

Hit me [….. ] one more time.


Spring. is the fourth and final part of Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring., Quarantine’s epic quartet of work about the human life cycle and our relationship with time.
