About us

Natasha Langridge founder of Renegade Theater

Renegade Theatre founded by Natasha Langridge was set-up in 2009 as an umbrella to create and produce plays for, with and about her local community in North Kensington. A long time resident Natasha feels passionate about her community and has been instrumental in bringing the community together and giving the local residents a voice.

Renegade's first project was In Memory of Leaves written and performed by Natasha; an uncompromising monologue that explores what happens to communities when they are moved from their homes. It is personal and bracing; a love note to neighbours and a revolutionary call to the world. In Memory of Leaves was performed at the inTRANSIT Festival, Unscene 199 Theatre, the Teatro Keiros Festival (Italy), Althone Gardens, Portobello Live, London Pavillion, as well as completing a two week run on a Fordham Gallery Barge.

Renegade Theatre's current projects include a year long project The Wornington Word: A People's History of The Wornington Green Estate W10. The project will record and archive the history of the estates residents from the 1960's up to recent times with oral histories, photos and a documentary that will eventually be archived in Kensington Central and North Kensington Libraries as well as being entered into the 2020 Portobello Film Festival. The project will ultimately facilitate the residents in coming together, for the last time, to create a documented history of their lives on the estate before it is demolished and regenerated into the new Portobello Square development.

Renegade Theatre also runs free Saturday drama classes for local children, led by actress and drama teacher Hannah Hutch who has performed at The National Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe, The Old Vic and the BBC. The classes use a mix of drama and physical theatre games with techniques to promote fun, confidence and creativity. The current classes, running until 21st December 2019, will culminate in a Christmas play: A Wornington Wish.
