Support Us

We are a not-for-profit organisation that welcomes the generous support of our Friends, Angels and Supporters.

2020 was a landmark year for us as a company. The silver lining to the utter terrible cloud of the pandemic gave us the opportunity to relook at the way we made work, assess what we needed to do as a company and plan for a vibrant, sustainable and impactful future. 

Returning to production in 2021 we made our Southwark Playhouse debut with Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, continuing and building that relationship with Southwark Playhouse with Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus in 2022, William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and most recently Thomas Middleton and William Rowley’s The Changeling in 2023.

In addition to our work on stage we have increased our research and development with the creation of the Lazarus Engine Room, a space to investigate, explore and interrogate work for future productions. 


“A landmark production for a ground breaking company”

In 2023 the Lazarus Gym opened it’s doors for the first time in response to the shortage of classical text and ensemble skills due to the pandemic. 

As we look forward, we will return to Southwark Playhouse in 2024 for an epic new project, a number of research and development projects will take place in the spring and the Lazarus Gym will reopen.

Possibly our biggest and most exciting project, creating our own theatre space and home, is progressing too – more on that anon.

If you, like us, love big, epic, ensemble, storytelling, then we would love to have you with us. Join us as a Lazarus Friend or Lazarus Angel.
