"A company that clearly has talent"

time out

Not Too Tame are a multi award winning theatre company working in ensemble to produce immersive, site specific work in non traditional theatre spaces. We create work that breaks the boundaries of tame, polite theatre which celebrates regional identity and champions Community. We are committed to giving a voice to those rarely heard on stage. We are the antidote for those who feel Theatre isn't for them.

We are you. We are Not Too Tame.

Our unique productions are hopeful and energetic, celebrating the resilience of the human spirit. We put our audiences at the very heart of what we do down to the familiar, but larger than life characters to performing in the venues where you feel most at home.  Whatever's going on in life you can be safe in the knowledge that a Not Too Tame show will always provide a heartwarming and electric night out.

Our diverse company members hail from all over the UK and beyond; Bristol, London, Glasgow, Cardiff, Yorkshire, Cheshire all the way to Singapore and Sydney - but our heart is based and originates from Warrington in the North West of England.


"Our work guarantees to entertain, but we also explore the socially relevant every day dilemmas of modern Britain. We want to be known as the Jimmy McGovern and Quintin Tarantinos of Theatre. We are not competing with other theatre offers, we’re competing with the likes of Facebook and Netflix, so we need to deliver the goods in live experience'.“

Jimmy Fairhurst  - Artistic Director
