About us

Riding Lights Theatre Company is one of the UK's most productive and long-established independent theatre companies. Founded in York over 40 years ago, partly through the initiative of a city-centre church, the company continues to take innovative, accessible theatre into all kinds of communities far and wide.

Our aim is to create unforgettable, entertaining theatre in response to current issues and the hopes and fears of the world we share.

While the company's roots are in a Christian ethos, our work is open to everyone, using faith as a springboard to explore all aspects of life.

The Word Bank

Paul’s vision for Riding Lights Theatre Company was that we are called to make kingdom-centred theatre that is responsive, urgent, visionary, insightful and prophetic, and that in order to do that we need new plays.

A skilful wordsmith himself, he became an excellent commissioner and dramaturg: a midwife of new work, and encourager of writers. He loved new writing: developing it through rehearsal, bringing it to performance and sharing it with audiences. In his hands, new writing became the lifeblood of the company. And in his memory, The Word Bank will support the commission and production of further new writing, ensuring that it remains at the heart of Riding Lights’ work.

Paul made extraordinary theatre with a spirit of abundance and generosity, and we invite you to give to The Word Bank with that same spirit of abundance, no matter how much or how little you can give. The Word Bank will remain open as a fund for the next year, during which time it can receive gifts regularly or irregularly that will nurture the creation and presentation of new work as Riding Lights moves into the future.
