This is the Stan's Cafe Shop, where you can buy all manner of Stan products. Proceeds go towards producing further art that no one is visionary or crazy enough to commission.

Payment
We have set up a shopping cart using PayPal, the well known Internet credit / debit card payment system. It works well. If you already have a PayPal account, then you can use it to buy things from us. If you haven't got an account, then you can still use the system to make a one-off purchase, and you have the option of setting up an account at the end, which you can use in the future. If you have any queries about the PayPal system itself then don't ask us, visit the PayPal website for more details.

If you'd rather not use PayPal, then you can send your order, along with a cheque for the total in sterling (payable to Stan's Cafe) to:
Stan's Cafe,
PO BOX 16044,
Birmingham.
B16 6SG

We aim to get items in the post within a week of receiving your payment. Standard stock items should be dispatched sooner than this. We will not post tickets - we will send you a confirmation email - please bring this with you on the night. If you have any comments or queries about our shop, then please send them to us via the contact page.

There are currently no tickets for sale via this website.

Devising Theatre With Stan's Cafe written by Dr. Mark Crossley and James Yarker with interviews from many company members. The book is a guide to devising theatre using Stan's Cafe's practice as its model. It includes the company's approach and philosophy, the stories behind many shows and practical exercises, there are even some photographs as well. Additional footnotes, images and references for the book can be found on this website.

Buying directly from us is cheaper than most places and it means profits are fed back into us making more theatre; happy days!

Trailblazers: In A Visible City designed by Gareth Courage, with photographs and quotes from 120 young people from 20 schools across Birmingham. This beautiful art object is also a piece of social documentation setting out the hopes, aspirations and frustrations of a group of 14 and 15 year olds.
A preview of the map can be found on the Trailblazers page, but this lacks the young people's direct quotes and 1200 photographs on the reverse. Digital is no substitute for the lovely tactile folding object.

Videos document many Stan's Cafe productions, including most major touring shows. The quality varies according to the techonology and skill we had available at the time of recording. Most of the shows are on VHS, though we have now started using DVD, and this is clearly indicated in each case. They cost 18 each including postage.

NB Its Your Film, The Black Maze and Of All The People In All The World do not lend themselves to video documentation.

Videos exist of The Carrier Frequency and most shows made with students; these are unavailable as they contain material for which we do not have copyright release. Viewing of these is possible, by prior arrangement, at Stan's HQ in Birmingham.
