Custom/Practice is a London-based theatre company led by director Rae Mcken (RSC, Young Vic, Birmingham Rep) and actors Rebecca Loudon and Lorenzo Martelli.

We’re committed to expanding access to classic text for both audiences and practitioners through an integrated programme of professional development workshops for artists and full-scale, high-quality productions that reflect the cultural diversity of 21st Century Britain, and which are in turn supported and expanded by extensive educational outreach.

We have been generously supported by Arts Council England, the Royal Shakespeare Company and English Touring Theatre to date, and our work has been described as “an historic achievement” by Jatinder Verma (Artistic Director, Tara Arts) and “vital and groundbreaking” (Struan Leslie, Head of Movement, Royal Shakespeare Company).

Our work is textually rigorous, physically charged and openly collaborative.
