Following the UK Goverment advice issued on 16 March, Putney Theatre Company has made the difficult decision to postpone the following shows: The Hollow, Truth or Dare?, Gut and Cyrano de Bergerac. Rehearsals and auditions have also ceased for all productions.
Ticket-holders for the above shows will be contacted by our Box Office team in order to arrange exchanges and credit notes. We ask that you bear with us during this process.
The health and wellbeing of our audiences, staff and volunteers continue to remain our utmost priority in every decision we make. We are currently working on ways to keep engaged with our community over the coming weeks and months. Further updates and date changes will be posted on our website and social media channels when our position becomes clearer.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful audiences and members for their support during this time of huge uncertainty. As a charity we rely on ticket sales to keep our doors open and the insecurity that lies ahead is a real worry for a theatre that has been open to the local community for 56 years. Therefore – if you can afford to – please consider donating to the theatre; contributions, however large or small, will help us be an even stronger theatre when we reopen.
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.
