Beautiful Shadows

Beautiful Shadows is a new theatre company with a focus on creating work with thought-provoking, occasionally darker overtones.




Welcome to the first Beautiful Shadows blog, featured on our shiny new website!  It’s all rather exciting…  

So, we are Matt and Neil, a Writer and Director team that make up Beautiful Shadows.  As the taglines suggest, our interest is creating work with thought-provoking themes, often incorporating fantastical and occasionally dark elements.  

One of our first pieces is a one-act play called Stone.  It is written by Matt and directed by Neil, and we are continuing to develop it.  A rehearsed reading of the latest draft will be performed as part of the Departure Lounge Check-In Festival at Attenborough Arts Centre on the 16th April 2016, at 5pm.  Stone will give you a good taste of the kind of work we aim to create, so it would be fantastic to see you there!  For more information on the Departure Lounge Check-In Festival, and to book tickets, please check out their website:  

We will aim to post blogs regularly updating you with what we are up to, so please join our mailing list, and keep checking the site for news!   Thanks for coming with us on this journey, hope you enjoy the ride!
