“There are still tickets available for Threadbare Theatre Company’s Friday and Saturday’s shows – you would be privileged to get hold of one.” The Argus, Brighton
Threadbare Theatre Company was established in 2003 by Writer/Director Lucy Linger. Her debut show Ben Jonson’s The Alchemist at The Courtyard Theatre in Kings Cross, sold out and received rave reviews. It was brought “Back by popular demand” by the producers at The Courtyard for a further 3 week run. More success followed with Pete’s View (written and directed by Lucy), and other shows, including the hugely popular TWO by Jim Cartwright and Wyrd Sisters by Terry Practchett. Threadbare Theatre Company have performed in London, Brighton, Surrey, Kent, Manchester and also at the Edinburgh Fringe.
“This Threadbare Theatre Company production seems to have it all… “. Camden New Journal
Threadbare Theatre Company produces character driven work that creates an intimate and accessible experience for our audiences. We aim to provide a platform to liberate audiences’ imaginations allowing them to rediscover the excitement of live theatre, without the need for busy sets and complicated technicals. We work in both traditional and non traditional spaces, including site specific and immersive work and produce plays from 100s of years ago to brand new writing. If it’s a good story we want to tell it!
