Angel Theatre Company is a professional organisation dedicated to producing London fringe theatre of the highest calibre. Our aim is to create work which is entertaining, challenging, engaging and thought provoking. Although we often perform in small venues, we want our audiences to experience the same quality of production as they would in any West End theatre, but for a fraction of the price!


Previous productions include Can’t Stand up for Falling Down, Eavesdropping, More Eavesdropping, 4:48 Psychosis, No Exit, The Maids, Autobahn, Eavesdropping Again, Footfalls & Play and Stray. Full details of each show can be viewed on the PAST PRODUCTIONS page.


Our next production will be a trio of Samuel Beckett plays; Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby at The Jack Studio Theatre in February-March 2020. For full details please visit the CURRENT PRODUCTIONS page.

JOHN PATTERSON - Artistic Director of Angel Theatre Company


John graduated from the University of Hull with an honours degree in drama before training as an actor at ALRA. He has worked extensively in the industry for over 20 years both as an actor and director. Recent acting credits include The Intern (Channel 4), New Tricks (BBC), Murder on the Home Front (ITV) and adverts for Bid TV and Netflix. In December 2017, John played the role of Gerry in a rehearsed reading of Richard Bickley’s new play Signal Failure. This was directed by Richard Cameron, writer of Can’t Stand up for Falling Down. John appeared in the 2019 Cineworld Christmas advert, which was screened in cinemas worldwide and in February 2020 filmed a Schweppes commercial for Israeli television.


In addition to acting, John is an experienced director and the Artistic Director of Angel Theatre Company. Throughout his career, John has directed over 60 productions. Recent credits include an agents showcase for graduate actors in the West End, Can't Stand up for Falling Down at the New Wimbledon Studio Theatre and Mark Ravenhill’s Citizenship at Watermans Arts Centre, which was part of the Royal National Theatre Connections Project 2016. In the summer of 2016, he conceptualised and directed Eavesdropping. Due to its overwhelming success, he created More Eavesdropping in February 2017. Since then he has directed Sarah Kane's 4:48 Psychosis, Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit, Jean Genet’s The Maids, Neil LaBute’s Autobahn, Eavesdropping Again (the third instalment in the ‘eavesdropping’ franchise) and Samuel Beckett’s Footfalls and Play. Most recently, John conceptualised and directed a new piece of verbatim theatre, Stray, which explored the plight of London's homeless community. It enjoyed a sell-out run at the White Bear Theatre in December 2019.
