Our mission is to give a voice to the most marginalised and to change the world for the better by telling and celebrating their stories. 

We believe that our theatre and all our projects should demonstrate, celebrate and explore the importance of diversity in our society. At Red Rose Chain, participants, artists and audiences exist as equals and everyone is valued and respected. We are constantly looking for ways to achieve greater diversity in the areas of gender, race, disability, sexuality, socio-economic background, faith and age. We also work against discrimination against all minorities as well as believing in the rehabilitation and potential of those with experience of the criminal justice system. We plan to increase our diversity by 2021 through casting and recruitment policies as well as through education and awareness raising among our whole community. Our policies will evolve and develop as world around us changes, and as we learn through our work and through listening to those who experience discrimination.
