Signal Theatre Company produce modern comedies, to the highest possible production values and with a sharp eye for contemporary resonance. Over the last ten years, we’ve produced five revivals, of plays undeservedly forgotten as well as well known, and one world premiere – our last show Sellotape Sisters by Lee Mattinson.
‘…a fabulous piece of theatre… it made us laugh, cry and everything in between…’ **** Views From the Gods on Sellotape Sisters, The Warren, Brighton as part of Brighton Fringe and Tristan Bates Theatre, London as part of Camden Fringe, 2016.
‘…coarsely funny …mixes life lessons with verbal zingers. …enjoyably slick, snappy production …conspicuously well cast and played…’ **** The Times on Shang-a-Lang.
And that really neatly sums us up – we don’t have a set style or taste, but we do generally like plays that are down to earth, popular and provocative. On top of that, we’re artist led and because our onstage half is a woman, we always choose plays with strong female roles; indeed, we’re proud that on several occasions, we’ve been called a feminist theatre company…
Above all, we aim to make theatre that’s fun – as much fun for you to watch as it is for us to create and perform.
‘…funny, earthy and sprinkled with a little dose of magic.’ The Stage on Signal’s The Night Before Christmas.
