Set up by a group of first year university students who wanted to bring good quality theatre to audiences for low prices, Pregnant Fish Theatre is built upon the ethos of intimate, stripped back performances for pocket money prices. Since 2010 the company have strived to create authentic, innovative and challenging theatre.
We believe that theatre can be made for everyone and performed everywhere. We’ve taken shows to high streets, abandoned shops, throughout gardens and pubs as well as theatre spaces. We think theatre is a way for audiences to come together and share an experience, and for us the story is the most important part of a production.
We have produced a large variety of original shows for both adults and young people, including several interactive children’s adventures for The RHS.
Our shows have been described as:
‘intimate and intense’ (SoundartRadio)
‘thoughtful and tender’ (Wildfire)
‘precisely what theatre should try to be’ (Christopher Fear)
