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.

The Covid-19 outbreak has had an unimaginable impact on our industry. As a company, we were fortunate to have literally just completed work on our Beckett trio before theatre was hit so hard. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all our colleagues who were not so lucky and had their runs cut short or cancelled.


We want to reassure our friends and followers that we are in a position to begin work on a new production as soon as we are physically able. We hope to be one of the first companies to help financially suffering fringe theatres get back on their feet by mounting a production as soon as they reopen.


In the meantime, to keep creative juices flowing, we are pleased to be working on an outdoor project this summer. We will of course adhere to the government guidelines on social distancing throughout the process. For full details about Sundays in the Park with Angel, please visit our CURRENT PRODUCTIONS page.
