WHERE IN THE WORLD?...

... quietly developing work of great important and ethical concern - attention should be paid
- Kevin Jackson KJ Theatre Diary
since our first season in December 2016, KXT has played host to a series of dynamic productions, exciting companies and brave new work. In 2017 alone the season includes 13 premiere productions and 7 developments. We’ve just come off the SOLD OUT SEASON of The Laden Table, and before we head into Jatinga (June 2017) we thought we’d take a minute to find out where in the world everybody is...
