Encompass is supported by:

North London: Pleasance Theatre

West London: Rose Kingston

Heather and all of the artists in the Directors Cut artistic community would like to give great thanks to these 4 theatres who are changing the lives of many artists, and those who benefit from their work, sharing visions, enabling expression, helping others and providing a spring board for dreams.
