Times Advertised Are Start Times.

We have a mission: create theatre that is focused on artistry, accessible, and celebrates the tradition of live theatre.  David Hare’s play, Amy’s View, directly addresses the question: is theatre dead in our society and culture?

It is our intention to use our production of Amy’s View to prompt a dialogue about the nature of the live theatre experience and inspire others to not only value its place in modern times but participate in the creation of theatre with our Dead Theatre Society project. The project invites established creatives and emerging artists 14-23 to work together to skill share and discover pathways into artistic careers. The project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Portsmouth Creates.  Mary Rose Productions had been incredibly fortunate to have the support it has received from the Portsmouth Guildhall Trust who have offered space for us to rehearse our play and a venue for our public performances coming September of 2024 at the Portsmouth Guildhall LENS Studio theatre.

It is encouraging that both our playwright, Sir David Hare, and Dame Judi Dench (who premiered  the role of Esme in Amy’s View) have given us their expressed  blessings
