We use our own personal stories and experiences to create compelling theatre. We work physically, but it doesn’t matter if you are fit or not. We are all about finding what works for the individual, and what you enjoy doing the most.

In 2008 he was an international delegate to youth theatre festival 'Contacting the World' in Liverpool, representing Massive. Scotty has performed in many Massive shows, including Havoc in the Garden and The Brave. In 2015 he took part in the Director's Lab, going on to co-direct The Wholehearted and the emerging artists' show Chance to Ignite in 2016.
