In the last few years Hoipolloi’s artistic focus has been producing the work of Hugh Hughes. This year we’re helping Hugh, his brother Derywn and sister Delyth bring Stories from an Invisible Town to life. It’s a new kind of project for all of us, neatly combining a live show with a new online space exploring Hugh’s childhood, his family and the place he comes from.

You can visit the online space at and tour dates are available here.

Hoipolloi’s work is all about engaging our audience’s imagination and sharing a story with them. Our stories take audiences on journeys where nothing is quite as it seems and fantasy blurs into reality.

We make theatre shows which reach out to audiences, both on stage and through our online digital content. Above all, our theatre shows are engaging, accessible and fun and each is a glimpse into a world of wild imagination and playful fantasy.
