Welcome to Original Theatre Online
Original Theatre Online has already been featured as critics pick for streaming from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Observer, The Mail on Sunday, The Express, Channel 4 news, Classic FM, WhatsOnStage and The Daily Telegraph.
We are the Original Theatre Company and we have been touring extensively all over the UK (and as far as the US) since 2004.
We love to make theatre. We love to tell stories. We love to tour our work across the UK. But most of all we love to thrill, excite and engage audiences.
And in this time of uncertainty and financial devastation for us and our industry we have set up Original Theatre Online to create and share our work digitally and hopefully bring some very needed income into the company and industry.
