Maybe You Like It, Maybe You Don't
Maybe You Like It creates collaborative, high-energy stage shows, audio shows and podcasts that aim to entertain and engage audiences with accessible, comedic work. We’re interested in exploring how we frame narratives, and what difference that makes to the story we’re telling.
We entertain audiences around the UK with well-told stories and fine-tuned comedy. Our mission is to be a force for developing collaborative storytelling and comedy, and people who make comedy and tell stories.
Our vision is for a world where there are structures, spaces and paths in place to allow anyone who wants to tell stories, entertain, and make people laugh to do so, regardless of form, medium, background, geography, or employment status. A world where the best stories and the funniest ideas shine through, but those still finding what that is for them have time and space to develop.
We value collaboration, silliness, working in unison, stories, having fun with ideas, considering and shaping the audience experience, developing comedy, telling compelling stories, making fast and fluid work, joyful creative spaces, creating memorable and entertaining experiences, challenging traditional boundaries of form and media, and challenging traditional processes in theatre.
