About The Unknown Theatre Company
2015 has been a bumper year for The Unknown Theatre Company: we've performed several shows, including at the Welsh Proms, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We've won the Glamorgan One-Act Play Festival, and taken two plays to the Wales Final Festival. We've worked closely and performed with an American company - McCurdy Theatre Arts - as well as taken a show to the British All-Winners Festival in Woking. We've done a show about nature - in the open air! - and performed a classic musical theatre show. Our junior group, the Unknown YoYos, staged extracts from Shakespeare...
And it's still only September!
We currently have a musical in rehearsal, and a full length play, with more play readings and workshops going on in the background. And there's more in the pipeline!
Keep an eye on our Next Shows page for news about forthcoming productions; see our About Us page for the full background story. For more about how we got here, check out our History.
Here's an extract from our 4-star review from this year's show CULT performed on the Edinburgh Fringe
"Cult is an interesting new piece of musical theatre, a collection of monologues and songs relating to different cult groups throughout history ...
... this was a really nicely presented piece with excellent music. The cast are also the musicians, taking turns on everything from piano to recorder with solo singers sharing some microphones. Everything is really well sung ...
The cast gave very honest, mature monologues with some really beautiful quieter moments with haunting backings...All in all a very interesting piece of work, very thought-provoking.
