SURREY ADVERTISER on Treasure Island 2019
Welcome to Mis-Shapen Chaos Theatre Company.
Created in 2018, we are a new company (but with years of experience producing top-quality productions)
Our Ethos is to provide high quality theatre and we pride ourselves in showcasing talented young individuals in many of our shows, enabling them to gain valuable insights into working with a professional company.
Following on from the success of our very first show, DNA by Dennis Kelly's in October 2018, we were thrilled to be invited to return to Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Mill Studio to present a brand new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic; Treasure Island in February 2019.
Treasure Island then went on to perform a three-week run at the Gilded Balloon as part of the World Famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Our third production saw us back at the Yvonne Arnaud's Mill studio with Punk Rock by Simon Stephens in November 2019.
In addition to producing productions we are also able to provide bespoke educational school workshops throughout Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex and Berkshire at very competitive prices.
If you have drama school auditions ahead and would like some one-to-one tuition we can help with your set pieces, offering advice and tips to help you give your very best on the day.
Feel free to scroll through the images in our gallery below. These were all taken from a selection of shows Directed or Co-Directed by our Artistic Director.
Why then, O brawling love, O loving hate,
O anything of nothing first create!
O heavy lightness, serious vanity,
Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms!
