What is Theatre Nemo?

Theatre Nemo is a Registered Charity set up in 1998 to give a voice to social issues, especially mental health. We do this through the medium of arts.

Theatre Nemo plays a valuable part in the lives of those it has touched. We actively encourage people with mental health problems and carers to take part. Our aim is to break down stigma and to give people a voice, and our experience so far has shown it is a powerful and truly worthwhile means of stimulation.

Theatre Nemo believes in the power of people. That is the ethos that underlines all our work in the field of those with social and mental health issues.
