The Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company is a unique company run by and for people with learning disabilities, based in Gateshead in the North-East of England. The original group formed in 1986 and after years of hard work they chose to set up an independent company. In January 2001 the Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company, a charitable company limited by guarantee, was established.
The company works with groups locally, nationally and internationally and over the last twenty-nine years we have led hundreds of workshops and have researched, devised and toured work, mainly to learning disabled audiences.
