"Because we tour to such a variety of venues our audiences will never see the same show twice - I love that about the work we create."
- Sarah Slator,
We're a Sussex based theatre company, although we now tour all over.
We pride ourselves on creating work for all spaces from historic buildings and churches to purpose built theatres and open-air venues.
Whilst the main aim of the company is to produce classical plays and literature that are accessible to all, particularly those living in rural communities, as specialists in making performances for all spaces, we also create commissioned works to bring to life ideas of venues and engage visitors.
We are delighted to work regularly with various charities and privately owned buildings to offer communities high quality theatre locally.
Our first production was Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, performed initially at St Botolph's Church, cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust (The CCT) nestled in the South Downs near Steyning. Due to the popularity of the performance we then toured Sussex and Surrey with The CCT later that same year and haven't looked back since!
We love the challenge of working in different spaces whether conventional or not so are always on the look out for somewhere new or different to perform. In 2021 we will work with a variety of new spaces as well as returning to those familiar.
In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, This is my Theatre grew during 2020-21 and so we created TIMT to manage our growing number of large scale and purpose-built theatre venues. It's still us and audiences get the same great shows-they're just BIGGER!
Sarah founded the company in 2016 after completing a masters degree in direction at Guildford School of Acting. She has worked for a number of renowned theatres including Chichester Festival Theatre, The Hawth Theatre and Brighton Open Air Theatre, and has worked on both UK and international tours for companies as a movement director.
