We are passionate about theatre!

Splendid Productions is a theatre company and an education company. We create challenging, vibrant theatre for young people, but we also provide expert training in all areas of drama from Practitioner theory to Presentation skills.

Since we began in 2003, we have gained an excellent reputation for both the inventiveness of our performances and the clarity of our teaching. We’re a small company and our priority is providing consistent, high-quality work for a growing band of regular clients. We’d love for you to be one of them!

Macbeth DVD, script and Teacher Pack on sale now

"A masterclass in performance from start to finish... top class theatre”
North West End

"Enterprising, imaginative, and highly enjoyable”

Our almost set-free, cast of three, 70-minute adaptation of Macbeth has been captured forever in the form of a live-performance DVD and an attractively wire-bound edition of the script, and the process of making it has been thoroughly annotated in our fattest-ever Teacher Pack.

Watch our trailer (above) for a flavour of the show.

All three are now available to purchase individually or all together from our Splendid Shop, where you'll also find the rest of our excellent range of teaching resources (including new Mind Maps - see below)

New Mind Maps: Macbeth, Shakespeare and Elizabethan Theatre

We’re excited because we have three brand new titles to add to our selection of unique theatrical Mind Maps: Macbeth, Shakespeare, and Elizabethan Theatre.

Researched, compiled and drawn by Splendid’s Mum, Artistic Director Kerry Frampton, these beautiful, fact-packed theatre-gasms are a comprehensive overview of play, playwright and period.

New workshops: Verbatim/Documentary Theatre, Max Stafford-Clark and Directorial Approaches

We’re now offering a new workshop programme with our regular director and practitioner Matt Wilde.

Matt was Associate Director of Out of Joint theatre company, and has first-hand experience of creating verbatim theatre with Max Stafford-Clark, David Hare and Robin Soans, having worked on the original productions of 'The Permanent Way', 'Stuff Happens' and 'A State Affair'.

He is available now for the following workshops:
Verbatim/Documentary Theatre - covering all areas from a basic introduction to the form, to techniques for creating your own verbatim piece.
Max Stafford-Clark Practitioner session – exploring the work and methods of Max Stafford-Clark
Directorial Approaches – ways to develop a clear directorial view and rehearsal techniques to support it.

Study Splendid Productions with OCR

We were delighted to announce that we have been working with the excellent AS/A2 Drama & Theatre team at OCR to create a Topic Exploration Pack all about Splendid (our own self!).

It's an overview of the kind of theatre we aim to make, and includes some suggested workshop activities so you can try out a Splendid session of your own.

Teachers using the OCR syllabus can use us as an influential practitioner, but the Splendid Pack (and many other useful resources) are available to everyone, and can be downloaded here: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/314576-practitioners-splendid-productions-topic-exploration-pack.pdf .

(If you're not with OCR but interested in teaching Splendid, check with your board - we offer lots of ways to support teachers directly.)
