We're excited to be staging a rehearsed reading of an extract from our new play in development, Fresh Start, at the Nuffield Southampton Theatres' scratch performance night - 'Experiment' on Monday, May 8, starting at 7.30pm. Experiment offers a range of new pieces of theatre in development. Artists present their work to test new projects; to ask questions about a piece; or to gather feedback from a friendly and constructively critical audience. Simmering with fresh ideas and diverse styles, Experiment is a melting pot for playwrights, companies and theatre-makers offering a compelling insight into the process of developing new work.  

Tickets are £5, and you can book here

A bright new star!


Congratulations to a star of the future.

Nine year old Anna Thomas (pictured left) won a radio play writing competition we organised in partnership with Vectis Radio, the community station for the Isle of Wight. 

And we are excited to confirm that we have recorded Anna's play - Terror Island - at the Vectis Radio studios for broadcast soon. So look out for that - and look out for the very talented Anna, too, who also stars in her own play, along with her talented friend Greta Dooley (right).

The play is produced by Kelvin Currie, a director of Vectis Radio, who also produced our first radio play, The Telescope.

Here comes Summer!

Audiences at Shanklin Theatre loved our production of 39 Steps, based on the Hitchcock film of the same name, in August last year.

A few examples of the feedback we received:  'Better than the London West End' .... 'Absolutely brilliant' .... 'Enjoyed it tremendously' ... 'Highest quality production'

And the good news is ... we're back again this August, this time with the fast and funny Ray Cooney farce, 'Funny Money'.
