Support Our Theatre

The Original Theatre Company has shown great tenacity and resourcefulness to flourish since its creation back in 2004

Without any public money. We have made it work on our own terms through nothing short of blind faith, endless perseverance and sheer determination.

However, as we embark on the next stage of our journey to bring barn-storming, large scale theatre to audiences from all walks of life, all over the country, we need all the help that we can muster… and this is where our ‘friends’ join the fray.
