Wondering what our name means?
‘The Fifth Business’ is taken from the novel ‘The Deptford Trilogy’ by Robertson Davies, and refers to the supporting members of a theatrical company who work behind the scenes to enable the main action to take place. This forms the guiding principle of what we do and how we do it.
