Τhe State Theatre of Cyprus offers productions through its stages:

Main Stage: With large-scale productions of classical and modern plays, as well as ancient drama, intended for large audiences. New Stage: Established in 1994 as scion of the Second Stage. Plays with small casts are performed in smaller spaces, with a more intimate relationship between stage and audience. Experimentation is facilitated as well as the quest for new creative ways of expression. This is the place where young artists and theatre people with fresh ideas have a channel of expression. 0-18 Stage: With plays by authors from Cyprus, Greece and other countries, THOC’s Stage 0-18 includes plays for children and youth, successfully reaching out to children of all ages, with performances specially organized for schools and nurseries.

The Cyprus Theatre Organisation, with over 430 productions, has developed excellent relations with state theatres and theatre organizations abroad, as well as with smaller but very significant companies in many countries, and has toured abroad extensively, giving performances in the United Kingdom, Egypt, Germany, Bulgaria, Russia, Greece, the USA, Poland, China, Denmark. Since 1980, missing only three festivals, THOC has taken part in the annual Epidaurus Festival, with plays from the Ancient Greek Drama repertory and has gained a prestigious place among the Festival’s participants. Furthermore, THOC enjoys numerous and successful collaborations with other European theatres through its membership in the European Theatre Convention (ETC) and the highly appreciated position it holds amongst its members offers opportunities for participation in European programs and other collaborations. Today THOC is undoubtedly one of the most important cultural operators in Cyprus and the nucleus of theatre activity on the island, a well-respected international artistic presence with a vast array of activities in the field of theatre development.
