Angel Theatre Company is 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, Stray and Not I, Catastrophe & Rockaby. Full details of each show can be viewed on the PAST PRODUCTIONS page.
