Our productions are about exploration. We do not tie ourselves to a fixed performance ethos or style; we discover what each show needs and do what it tells us to.

We use our imaginations as best we can to engage yours.

Conflicted Theatre are Evan Lordan & Gavin McEntee. We have been writing, devising, adapting, stealing and making theatre since 2010.
