“The young theatre company BAREtruth is courageous. Its agenda is to focus on subjects that many people don’t want to face and Little Stitches is a quartet of short plays about the disturbing issue of female genital mutilation … the great strength of Little Stitches is that, while distressing, it avoids sensationalism and is informative …

Crampton’s directing is impressively absorbing.”

BAREtruth is a young and dynamic theatre company that works across genres and styles to create work that focuses on the subjects that people often don’t want to face. This often includes human rights and political issues. Using theatre as a way of contributing to social change, we strive to offer audiences a fresh perspective; shining a light into dark corners and stimulating debate.
