New Production – “Good Girls/Saying Yes”



Spearshaker Theatre present an evening of new writing, showcasing two one act plays by Perdita Stott and Lisa Cagnacci at The Etcetera Theatre in Camden from 14th-16th Feb 2014.

’Good Girls’ by Perdita Stott, directed by Alexandra Agnew. Three women tell their stories. They have never met but their lives are linked over the years as they consider what it means to feel safe, to feel fear and what makes a person strong. Their gender stereotypes are challenged as they face vulnerability and what it means to be – and who can be – a victim.

’Saying Yes’ by Lisa Cagnacci, directed by Kate Murphy. Lauren and Ellie have been happily dating for 6 years. However, when Lauren unexpectedly decides to propose to Ellie their whole relationship is thrown into jeopardy! A light-hearted drama about what commitment really means and how sure we have to be before taking ’the plunge’ into marriage.

Performance times: 14th and 15th Feb @ 9.30pm, 16th Feb @ 8.30pm
Total running time: 1h 10mins
Tickets: £10 available online at or in person at the Box Office.
Theatre adress: Etcetera Theatre, 265 Camden High Street, London NW1 7BU. Nearest tube Camden Town.

Hello 2014! Exciting news!

We’re BACK with a new writing double bill that is going to be performed at a central London venue in Feb 2014!

Auditions were yesterday and there was an amazing turnout with some truly amazing talent – thank you to everyone who attended :)  Casting to be announced this week!



Fantastic Show – More To Come

After the sell out success of our recent show The Other Plans, a new writing piece by Catherine Bray and Sara Hunt, we’re really looking forward to our next production.

Christmas is coming so we’re hoping to bring you a little bit of festive fun!!!

If you think you’ve got a script that fits the bill – comedy, drama or maybe even a pantomime then get in touch.

We ‘d really love to hear from you.

In the meantime now that winters on its way and there are only 91 days left to Christmas  just a reminder of what we’ve got to look forward to!!!
