Hello! Thank you for visiting our page.
Let's get down to it!

Who we are:
In 2013, Middle-Weight Theatre Company was founded by writer Matt Roberts and director Tom Stabb with the aim to produce and maintain high quality theatre entertainment and showcase insightful, thought provoking writing through a variety of talented actors.

Since Middle-Weight's initial projects, Matt and Tom have welcomed the talents of Al Wadlan, Chrissy Marshall and Jemma Gillard in the co-running of the company as of 2015.
All have a vast range of expertise and experience; between them they have worked in teaching, the NHS, both the music and theatre industry and burlesque to name a few of their trades and talents.

What we do:
We're a family of 5 who between us cover directing, producing, writing, editing, acting, promoting and performing - it’s pretty challenging work which requires total dedication, but it is equally fun, wonderfully unpredictable and always exhilarating. 

Why we do it:
Inspired by both troubling and swiftly changing times, Middle-Weight Theatre Company have, always through original writing, tackled often contentious subjects such as the effects of misogyny in the workplace, the epidemic of loneliness, the phenomenon of Broken Britain and the history of anaesthesia and it's effect on the modern society.
Each play is written and performed in a way that challenges the audience by presenting them with subjective, unusual and impressionistic perspectives of these themes, encouraging them always to debate, explore and argue Middle-Weight's original and always entertaining content.

During the years since the company’s inception, we have been thoroughly humbled by the endless support and goodwill we have received by our friends, families, all of our audience members, reviewers and venues across the country.

Thus far, we have written, produced, performed and toured four original productions:
'Sound Bite' - 2013:
'Insensible' - 2015:
'Remedies - A Ballad of Broken Britain' - 2016/2017:
'Limited Company - The Answer to Loneliness' - 2018:
We have also produced and performed 'Run For Your Wife' - by Ray Cooney (in tribute to Tom's late father) - 2015:


So, what's next? 

Rehearsals have already begun for our fifth original production . . .

'amendments: A Play on Words' is a study of the prevalence of political correctness in our lives today and whether it is destroying our language and diminishing our lives, or if it is a necessary component of a society in order to protect its weak and vulnerable.
