Heifer Productions specialises in exploring cultural heritage through theatre and storytelling.
We produce plays, facilitate workshops and lead youth projects with a range of experienced artists working in the theatre industry. As well as offering artist residencies to schools, we work with local youth groups to create new plays and run our own workshops.
Our professional branch creates original productions exploring our cultural heritage, with our major new project delving into the world of queer pageant director, Gwen Lally.

Dan has been working in the arts since a teen, starting off as a tech operator and designer before moving onto workshop delivery and direction. Now he enjoys using a range of disciplines in workshops, from film to sculpture, to make sure everyone can take part. In his spare time he is trying to finish the zombie novel he started 14 years ago.
Tom is something of an all-rounder with experience in acting, directing, writing, theatre design, and drama education. He graduated from the acting course at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2001 and worked in theatre, film, and television until 2017, when he spent 5 years working with Heifer to deliver Drama and Theatre Craft syllabuses within secondary school settings.
