Who we are.

Stickleback Plasticus are a small, high impact, extremely experienced Street Theatre Company with great performing pedigree.

For over 25 years, we have released high energy, good humoured improvisations and inclusive comic anarchy on streets, festivals, family parties, sassy-mouthed cabarets and at celebratory events all around the globe, interacting with hugely diverse audiences.

Our aims are simple:
to generate laughter
to promote playfulness
encourage communication and interaction
dissolve barriers between people
to bring out the humanity in all of us...
...and thus save the world!

What we do.

Stickleback create lovable and provocative, well-rounded characters who instigate delightfully ridiculous situations that are both entertaining and also 'invitations to experience'.  We invent humorous interactive performances in which theatre blends and interferes with normality and the real lives of the audience.

Flexible, responsive and adaptable, we feed off the unpredictable.

Our improvised physical and verbal comedy is both engaging 'close up' and intriguing and hilarious from further away.  The audience can interact or just enjoy the comedic situations we create at a safe distance!

Our energy, exuberance and sense of play are INFECTIOUS!

We deliver exciting quality entertainment and a huge presence in any situation - indoors or outdoors.


We are happy to tailor our work to your event OR you can commission us to create unique bespoke performances for your special something!

‘Please pass on my particular thanks to Stickleback Plasticus – their versatility and flexibility was superb!’
