We were really pleased to be able to put on 'Stories from the Attic' on 12th and 13th December before the current lockdown. Emma and Jeff conceived and oversaw the production and created a magical attic space on the main stage. Woven into the production were thoughts from grandma, skilfully supported by two puppeteers. The lighting and sound set the scene and maintained the suspense as the eight actors each told their stories in turn. Each piece had a different director too so lots of members were able to get involved. The audiences really seemed to love this inventive, atmospheric piece of theatre and being in the theatre again. Thank you to everyone involved.
The theatre is now closed but we are planning more online ticketed shows over the next few months and social events and play readings for our members.
PUTNEY THEATRE COMPANY
We are one of the leading amateur theatre companies in the UK, based in Putney, south-west London.
We produce theatre that challenges our audiences, but also entertains them. We provide a friendly atmosphere and a process that helps actors, directors and backstage crews develop, get to know new friends and become part of our local community.
There are lot of ways to get involved. Find out more below:
How to Get Involved
We are a membership community, which means we ask everyone who gets involved with productions and the company to become a member.
If you're interested in joining us, we run regular member events for you to introduce yourself. If you drop us a line, we'll be happy to arrange for you to come in, see the space and talk to some current members.
Any theatre revolves around its shows, and Putney Theatre Company productions range from large-cast plays to monologues.
We stage about 12 main productions a year and our range is wide and challenging. Recent productions have included works by Shakespeare, Chekhov, Alan Bennett, Nina Raine, Tom Stoppard, Vicky Jones and Lucy Prebble to name just a few.
We aim to produce a diverse range of theatre – we don't only play the classics. Putney Theatre Company actively supports new writing, and often stages plays by relatively unknown writers – with much success. We also provide a showcase for our own members’ writing: members’ plays are regularly performed, and several have gone on to be published and performed elsewhere.
