Meanwhile we have more online shows planned. Auditions have just been announced for Eight by Ella Hickson which will be a pre recorded online show.

Our online ticketed performance of  The Weir, by Conor McPherson, directed by Ian Higham took place on 25th February. The cast included: Joe Bradley, Jim Dixon, Ellen Fife, Tim Iredale and Graham Kellas. The show was produced by Jeff Graves and the Technical Producer was Tom Sainsbury. We estimate nearly 250 people watched online based on ticket sales and feedback was great. A few comments below:

Congrats to all cast and crew of The Weir! I really DID feel I was in a pub with you. Would love to know what you were really drinking though...

Very well done! Congrats  to the whole team behind this. Surprisingly cinematic too. Thank you for showing how to do plays in Zoom.

The Weir lost nothing on Zoom - such a powerful play and brilliantly put together by everyone - massive congratulations  and thanks to you all for treating us to an evening of proper theatre in our homes.

Well done guys. Really enjoyed The Weir! Special shout out to the magical technical direction. It was spot on! I’m so in awe!

OUR PRODUCTIONS

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.

Next productions
