PSYCHEdelight is a participatory Theatre Company of Sanctuary founded in 2011 by Sophie Besse, a playwright and theatre director trained in both drama and therapy.

We celebrate diversity and promote social inclusion by bringing marginalised communities and local people together  through our creations and workshops. Our language is clowning and physical/visual theatre. It's a universal one, accessible to all nationalities, ages, and abilities. Laughter is our favourite antidote to stress, trauma, exclusion and isolation and such an empowering and magic tool to transform pity into admiration.

We share our practice during our RETREATS IN FRANCE several times a year and also run our TOGETHER WORKSHOPS in London but also nationally and internationally.

Young Vic Taking Part is delighted to support PSYCHEdelight... We believe theatre should open up doors to the world, and help us understand the lives of others. PSYCHEdelight is doing just this”” (Imogen Brodie). 


"The work of PSYCHEdelight is smart, nuanced and important. They create work that shines with authenticity, that does all the great things theatre should do - Entertain, move, provoke and motivate." Theatre Delicatessen. Roland Smith
