Welcome to Theatrical Niche Ltd.
We have been touring the UK since 2012 and Ireland since 2017 with dynamic adaptations of worldwide classics.
Back in 2014, Arts Council England chose to support our "Blood Wedding" tour of theatres and schools. Since then, we have received support several times with our multidisciplinary version of "Lysistrata" by Aristophanes, our Commedia Dell'Arte based adaptation of "Tartuffe", our modern re-working of "Dr. Faustus", Berkoff's "Metamorphosis", "Lady Windermere's Fan" with a Commedia twist, and "A Doll's House" using Verbatim interviews and choreography. All of this was achieved with a huge amount of help from our friends across the UK, and of course the Arts Council.
We provide free workshops alongside shows - and are doing so again next season with our modern production of "Uncle Vanya", incorporating physical theatre and focusing on pastoral elements of conservation, as well the parallel human need for affection & care.
Please check with your local venue to get booked in, and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn from industry experts; we can't wait to meet you.

Most recent REVIEW snippets:
"I’ve seen numerous productions of A Doll’s House over the years, but this is the first one that’s fleshed out what was hiding in plain sight – the overarching weight of the characters’ worries and what their respective fears compels them to do." 4.5 stars - Breaking the Fourth Wall
"A truly phenomenal version of the play... The staging, movement, lighting... everything about this production was West-end worthy" 5 stars - Colchester Life
"The choreography was indeed emotive and the use of real-life accounts of abuse and mental issues were creatively delivered and resulted in moving moments of physical expression and devastating recounts of cruelty" - LondonTheatre1
(Lady Windermere's Fan, 2017):
"A social satire wild with comedy and emotion.. Venetia's stylish and high-speed adaptation makes the play as bitingly funny and scandalous as ever - but its quirky modern charm only adds to the fun" - Burnley Express
"Finely-timed and energetic... clever and entertaining.. a sparkling rendition" - 4 stars, LondonTheatre1
"Excellent, purposefully stylised performances.. an imaginative and worthwhile adaptation" - Richmondshire Today
Recent Feedback (A Doll's House, 2018):
"I bought my Sixth Form students and they were so animated after the performance. They saw both Krogstad and Rank as deeply sympathetic characters which they had not been able to perceive before (brilliant acting - thank you). Well done - it was absolutely FAB." - Joanne Clarkson (at Tara Arts London), RGS Guildford
"Contemporarizing an age-Old play is not a cakewalk but that was done well. Seeing gender stereotypes was nice but nicer aspect was to see the gender based violence men had to face. Exploring verbatim in the most vulnerable way was quite shaking Experience as an audience. Choreography, movement and puppetry were flawless." - (At Chequer Mead Theatre) East Grinstead
