Spearshaker Theatre was established in 2005 by Kate Murphy. The first production staged was an adaptation of A Midsummer Nights Dream entitled MSND. The show ran for two consecutive years at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at the Bedlam Theatre and Augustines Venue.
Spearshaker was relaunched in 2012 by Kate Murphy and Meera Shaunak. Since then Spearshaker has produced three sell out new writing shows – Protest! and The Games in 2012 and the fabulous The Other Plans in 2013. We are now looking to our fourth production Good Girls/Saying Yes being staged from 14th-16th February 2014 – hope to see you there!
Collaborating with new writing talent has always been at the heart of Spearshaker’s ethos and we’re constantly on the lookout for passionate theatre-makers to join our team. If you’ve got something you think we might be interested in, be it a play, a directing concept, or anything related to treading the boards please contact us via our contact page
