Baked Bean Theatre Company
Theatre company for adults with learning disabilities
About Us

We are a collective of actors with learning disabilities.


We devise & produce our own plays & films.


We meet to rehearse & write twice a week and generally produce one film & one or two major plays a year as well as some smaller projects.


We perform in theatres in and around London, usually to sell out audiences & our films have been shown in cinemas.


We challenge peoples preconceptions about what people with learning disabilities are capable of. We do this by producing theatre of a high standard that entertains, educates and delights.
People often ask us how we benefit from being part of a group like The Baked Bean Theatre Company.


The regular workshops and rehearsals give us a safe & supported environment to explore and share our ideas. We learn a new level of commitment to ourselves and each other & enjoy greatly improved confidence & self esteem.
Our performances and films give us an opportunity to become integrated within the community. We get to work with directors, technicians, theatre staff and other actors who don't have learning disabilities. This helps the world at large become more aware and accepting of people who do have learning disabilities.


If you or any one you know would like to be a part of the Baked Bean Theatre Company please email us at

or call us on 020 8944 0024.


If you have a genuine desire to perform we really want to hear from you.
