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.
