After seeing Souvenir at Quay Arts, I definitely feel five stars is a must. A most impressive slice of theatre, and music, culture, and history too.

Brilliant acting - do not miss Fresh Start: a great play!

Audience feedback keeps getting better and better, and it motivates us to keep improving. That's why we are embarking on our most ambitious programme yet. It began with Fresh Start, which got an amazing reaction at its premiere in Bournemouth in February.

Now we are in rehearsal for our latest new play, I.D, which explores the theme of gender and identity and the impact it can have on all our lives. Through this production, we are raising funds to support Isle of Wight Pride, which is hosting UK Pride this year!  Three people are making their Origins debuts in I.D, so don't miss it!!

You can see I.D at Quay Arts on June 15 ... book here

Origins Theatre has a home at last ...Formed on the Isle of Wight eight years ago, we are now based at Aspire Ryde, and it feels so good to have a roof over our heads!

Aspire Ryde is the perfect place for us, not just because it offers great facilities for our performances and rehearsals but also because it is an important hub for the whole community: and involving and supporting the community is at the heart of what we do.

Aspire Ryde is at Dover Street, Ryde, Isle of Wight PO33 2BN.
