Order By Numbers was a collective of theatre workers that put on three shows during 1985 and 1986. Teatro Unidad y Liberacion was a bilingual Spanish/English performance group active in 1987. Both groups had a number of members in common, and both were also 'administered under an incorporated body called The New Actors Company.
Hugh Watson and Penny Glass provide insight into all three companies. The chapter also includes excerpts from a 1994 account of Order By Numbers and The New Actors Company written by Kerry O'Rourke.
