Hercules Productions is a theatre company based in Manchester set up in 2006 by writer, director and actor Marcus Hercules. The company’s aim is to use theatre, film, digital arts and music to create eye-opening live performance events that are reflective of the conflicts and cultures we experience in the urban landscapes of the UK today. Marcus Hercules translates the real stories of people from these challenging environments into the production of high quality theatre, to be presented in various contexts and forms.

Prison Game Crowd Source Funding

We need your help in reaching as many people as possible to help fund our Indiegogo campaign. Our company has big plans to make a difference to people’s lives but we can’t do that without support.

Prison Game is a one-man physical theatre performance packed with an intense narrative and hard hitting truth. It’s the real-life story of a young boy’s sudden exposure to crime and the prison system.

Touring to :HOME theatre, Manchester, Theatre in the Mill, Bradford and Arcola theatre in London, Hercules Productions will share the important true story of life within the prison system.

With your help, Hercules Productions will help audiences across the UK  discuss openly the nature of crime and the prison system, provoking educational and thoughtful conversation. Working with Youth Offending Officers, the Hercules Productions team will develop a number of workshop sessions and educational pack.
