Threadbare Theatre Company was established in 2003 by Director Lucy Linger. Her debut show Ben Jonson’s The Alchemist at The Courtyard Theatre in Kings Cross, sold out and recieved 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 Linger), and other shows, including the hugely popular Wyrd Sisters by Terry Practchett. Threadbare Theatre Company have performed in London venues and also at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Whilst enjoying creating theatre in London, Lucy, a Surrey resident, noticed a lack of professional, affordable, local theatre. The amateur dramatic scene is vibrant and much respected in the area, but for professional theatre local residents are forced to travel further afield.
Lucy has therefore launched Threabare Theatre Company’s newest Venture The Play at the Pub www.theplayatthepub.co.uk utalising a local pub as a make shift theatre, and providing high quality, professional theatre, right on your door step.
