At CTC we are passionate about story telling and want to reach the widest audience we can. With this in mind, we produce unashamedly populist work, though always with a subversive undercurrent of cheekiness, eccentricity and fun.
Whilst we acknowledge theatrical traditions we believe that no text is sacred and we should always find a "way in" for our audience. As a result, our theatre should feel very "now" both in its content and in the truthful urgency of its performance. We shudder at the thought of producing anything "ordinary".
Cherwell Theatre Company was established in 2004 and co-founded by actor & director Nasser Memarzia and Karen Corradi. Over a decade later we remain a strong theatrical presence in North Oxfordshire - meet the team!
In addition to our work with young people CTC are dedicated to providing career development opportunities for theatre professionals in Oxfordshire. We are delighted to have given many local actors their first jobs, commissioned works from previously unpublished playwrights and encourage our artists to explore many different creative avenues with us. If you have a base in Oxfordshire or its surrounding counties we want to hear from you.
