Moving Stories 

Dream - Create - Engage

"If you don’t know the trees you may be lost in the forest, but if you don’t know the stories you may be lost in life".

Welcome to Moving Stories!

We love making theatre that can’t be forgotten. We have created theatrical events in bedrooms, castles, amphitheatres, a damp basement of a famous Warsaw rock music venue, Borough Market, a betting shop in Hammersmith, on Zoom - as well as Shakespeare's Globe, the Southwark Playhouse, Riverside Studios, Minack Theatre and the Bristol Old Vic. Most importantly, we seek to engage people on a human level and create theatre that can connect us back together again. Even in a Pandemic.

Currently working on: 

‘Reconnecting…’ a new live zoom play by Fiona Paul. 

In the absence of the live theatrical event, we realised the need for our audiences to find ways to reconnect through a story for our strange and challenging times. 'Reconnecting..' is a play written for Zoom and performed live on Zoom. A voyeuristic look at one woman’s desperate struggle to cope with loneliness in lockdown. Following a successful rehearsed reading in July 2020, we are now planning a virtual tour to bring this play to a wider audience. 

 “They have done an impressive thing here, to make a drama out of the Covid nightmare and stage it on zoom”. (Kevin Lygo, Director of TV at ITV). 

Romeo and Juliet

In July 2019 we enjoyed a sell-out run of our summer production of 'Romeo and Juliet'  The show opened at the Roman Theatre in St Albans July 1st-8th, and moved on to the world renowned Minack Theatre July 22nd-26th. We had a magical time and played to over 7,500 people! With an original folk score by Matthew Reeve, this unique production looks forward to a future life...

Band of Mothers: 
still creating...

We continue our collaboration with the wonderful folk at Shakespeare’s Globe, where we originated our Band of Mothers Company in 2018. We’ve remained creative and connected through lockdown, and produced a range of responses to being mother artists living through a Global Pandemic.
