About Us

Myrtle Theatre Company creates ambitious, original theatre that articulates the thoughts and feelings of people whose voices are often unheard.

"I think the reason Myrtle is held in such high regard, is due to the combination of rigour and flair in each of their endeavours. Each piece of work is created with deep intellectual and aesthetic rigour, while being produced in a way which is infectiously affecting and open and available to all."
Anthony Banks, Associate Director, (Learning), National Theatre

Based in Bristol but working nationally and internationally, the company (led by Artistic Director Heather Williams and Administrative Director Hilary Davis) has established a strong, national reputation for its innovative productions.

The work grows out of unique collaborations between experienced professional theatre makers and people from a wide cross-section of society. This allows us to create authentic and meaningful new plays about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.

Inclusivity informs the design and delivery of all Myrtle’s projects, engaging the widest possible audience through performance and participation opportunities.

We work closely with our patron, Catherine Johnson, whose support and artistic mentoring is invaluable.
