The Maverick Theatre Company is all about having a great 'classic' night out!
Maverick created professional pub theatre in Birmingham, England throughout the nineties and attracted huge new audiences to theatre. We're now working on three main UK wide projects -
- The Maverick 'People's Companies', where top professionals create plays and musicals in local communities with a supportive mix of professional and amateur performers, artists and technicians.
- Maverick's 'Pocket Classics' where audiences can thrill from the experience of some of the great English classics in an accessible, affordable way, through small-scale productions with large-scale effects and production values!
- 'Beats From The Streets' - a series of accessible, working-class originated comedies and dramas.
The Pocket Classics so far include; the Edinburgh Festival hits, Shakespeare's Henry V - Lion of England, Hamlet - Horatio's Tale , Romeo & Juliet and Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol (with Guy Masterson for Theatre Tours International) To come soon are Richard III, Macbeth; Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Sherlock Holmes Jnr, Dracula and Frankenstein.
Maverick is an award-winning company.
