"A company that clearly has talent"

time out

""We are Not Too Tame; a multi award winning theatre company working in ensemble to produce immersive, site specific work. At NTT we break the boundaries of tame, polite theatre and craft unique productions that combine quality work with a brilliant night out. Our work celebrates regional identity, champions Community and feels like a gig. Forging relationships between traditional theatre buildings and a network of pubs, clubs and music venues, Not Too Tame challenges the preconceptions of what Theatre should, and can be. We are firmly founded on a belief of ‘Theatre For All’, focusing on creating work that engages those who feel Theatre is not for them. So grab a pint, take a seat, and get a load of this! ”

Across pubs, clubs and live music venues, 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 Facebook and Netflix, people graft hard for their money so we need to deliver the goods in live experience and value for money - and we do.“

Jimmy Fairhurst  - Artistic Director
