ABOUT

“We create sweaty, energetic, crystal clear productions. Audiences follow the story better than ever and feel actively involved. Inventive and relentless, our work is informed by years of honing our principles in rep. The result is a dynamic cast of actors telling these amazing stories through sheer imaginary force”

Scott Ellis, Artistic Director

Merely Theatre is a UK touring company, staging Shakespeare in association with The Production Exchange. Since 2016 we have toured productions of Henry V, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night.

The company has now performed in over forty venues across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, from intimate studio spaces, to historic largescale theatres and selected outdoor venues.

In 2018, Merely Theatre will tour once more with Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing and it promises to be our best and most ambitious tour to date.

CURRENT PRODUCTIONS

Autumn Tour 2018. Merely Theatre will return this August, September and October with two brand new productions. Full tour schedule to be announced soon.

LOVE · WAR · WITCHCRAFT · MURDER · MADNESS

A couple’s ambition consumes the kingdom of Scotland. A King’s mind is poisoned by prophecy, power and paranoia. A nation is led to slaughter. To protect their world, those who lose the most must rise the highest.

LOVE · WAR · LAUGHTER · MARRIAGE · MADNESS

Soldiers return to Messina. Old flames flare up, fanned by cunning plans, midnight mischief and double deceptions. A mystery unpicked by a pair of bonkers watchmen. Love conquers all, whether they fight for or against it.
