Help fund Middle-Weight Theatre Company's 2019 tour, Edinburgh Festival Fringe appearances and beyond!
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit our page.
Let's get down to it!
Who we are:
In 2013, Middle-Weight Theatre Company was founded by writer Matt Roberts and director Tom Stabb with the aim to produce and maintain high quality theatre entertainment and showcase insightful, thought provoking writing through a variety of talented actors and stage crew.
Since Middle-Weight's initial projects, Matt and Tom have welcomed the talents of Al Wadlan, Chrissy Marshall and Jemma Gillard in the co-running of the company as of 2015.
All have a vast range of expertise and experience; between them they have worked in teaching, the NHS, both the music and theatre industry and burlesque, to name a few of their trades and talents.
What we do:
We're a family of 5 who between us cover directing, producing, writing, editing, acting, promoting and performing - it’s pretty challenging work which requires total dedication, but it is equally fun, wonderfully unpredictable and always exhilarating.
Why we do it:
Inspired by both troubling and swiftly changing times, Middle-Weight Theatre Company have always, through original writing, tackled often contentious subjects such as the effects of misogyny in the workplace, the epidemic of loneliness, the phenomenon of Broken Britain and the history of anaesthesia and it's effect on modern society.
Each play is written and performed in a way that challenges the audience by presenting them with subjective, unusual and impressionistic perspectives of these themes, encouraging them always to debate, explore and argue Middle-Weight's original and always entertaining content.
During the years since the company’s inception, we have been thoroughly humbled by the endless support and goodwill received by our friends, families, all of our audience members, reviewers and venues across the country.
Thus far, we have written, produced, performed and toured four original productions, (including performing Ray Cooney's 'Run For Your Wife' in tribute to Tom's late father)
