Our services

In partner ship with the Stanislavski electrotheatre we stage Public and private performances of Native English theatre shows for adults and children. Often we go on tour to unusual and interesting environments such as cafes like hard rock cafe and libraries and culture centres. We also offer high quality workshops and drama lessons. We work hand in hand with schools such as the British International.school and culture centres like the JCC and Zil, as well as kindergartens and even embassies!

Workshops and team building

Our workshops are famed for bringing people together under a common endeavour. Great theatre is the result of great teamwork. We teach you how to get the message across by putting the word into action. Trust, cooperation and mutual endeavour and understanding create an image of composure and effortlessness which supports and elevates and enriches your task of bringing the word to life. To do this you need enthusiasm and techinical, practical knowledge.

The bananas were born at an exact moment in time, April 23rd 2012, Shakespeare’s birthday and the National day of England – In the event we were invited to the British International School situated near Academicheskaya to perform our (literally) legendary version of George and The Dragon. It was such a fantastic occasion, the children were epic! They literally went crazy for our wonderful show! It was like a Sex Pistols concert! We loved it and we literally haven’t stopped doing children’s theatre since that day.
Now it is 2016 and we have a growing repertoire of shows from “the tiger who came to tea” to William Shakespeare’s Macbeth! We are so proud of our achievements and we are still having an amazing time creating our shows. The key thing is that we started doing the shows because these stories were the ones which I was reading to my own children – my little boy, Freddie is two years old now and he knows the Gruffalo by heart - but my older son, Arthur Tikhon Cooke, he’s nearly 8 and he is already interested in Shakespeare – so let 2016 being eh 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's passing mark the passing of our famous flying banana project from one stage of growth to the next – and long may it continue as I try to keep pace with my own family’s development and our organic and homely theatre company reflects this marvelous journey. What larks Pip! What larks!
