Nevertheless Productions, Somerset's first and only Pub Theatre, was the inspiration of Rosie Finnegan who invited me to join her in this project to offer Frome high-quality, adventurous, productions designed for a more intimate venue than the larger theatres. Since 2012 we have brought dozens of performances to The Cornerhouse and audience feedback is always enthusiastic. The upstairs room we use seats 40 and sells out regularly at our standard price of £5 per head.
We are always interested in hearing from companies with a stage-ready production, 1 hour maximum ~ it's an ideal opportunity for a company wanting extra tour dates or to try out work in development. We offer: intimate performance space without stage lighting, 50:50 split on gate, and local promotion in newspapers, social media, and our email lists. We will also distribute flyers if supplied.
In 2015 Frome Festival, we left our usual venue for a site-specific performance... in the Dissenters Cemetery, at twilight!
All three dates sold out and audience response to these true-life stories from the grave was phenomenal. See review on this website - more production shots on facebook.
We returned to The Cornerhouse in 2016 for Time Slides, a comedy-with-edge, and again all three dates sold out, with fantastic audience response.
