CultureClash Theatre is an award-winning, all-female, theatre company based in Cambridge and London. Established in 2015 by Serin Ibrahim and Cassandra Hercules, CultureClash Theatre was born out of a desire to explore contemporary socio-political issues in Britain, and to tell the stories of individuals (and in particular, of women) most disadvantaged or overlooked in today’s society.
At the heart of our theatre making process, we aim to creatively engage with our wider communities and to encourage a creative exploration of Britain’s ever changing social consciousness in order to produce bold, thought-provoking theatre.
In 2015 we became the first company to win the Mark Ralston Enterprise Award, for our debut production (Hannah and Hanna).
