Take the Space {Theatre Company}
“This tiny company punches way above its weight” The Public Review

We are an artist led company, formed in  2005 and commited to touring original new work of high quality across the whole range of the touring circuit – from the drawing room to the proscenium arch. Our name reflects our hope that we are flexible enough to play any space, that we are financially accessible to all sectors in the community and most of all ..that we thoroughly entertain and inspire our audiences.

Sam & I was our flagship production in 2005. Originally commissioned for The City Of London's Tercentenary Pepys Festival. An ACE award enabled us to tour. “this gem of a show … storytelling of the highest order”

Hanging Hooke followed in 2007, with an ACE award for research and development.“the most wonderful piece of new writing I have seen in years”

Dolce Via, also with an ACE award for research and development, opened in 2009 and now tours alongside our other two shows.

Both Hanging Hooke and Dolce Via are co productions with Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

We also actively engage in outreach work: workshops generated by material from our productions or specifically related to the art of performance itself or simply focusing on the related skills of performance with members from other professions.
