Scram Productions is a young theatre company that consists of a director, a producer, three musicians, and four Actors. The company was born from a group of friends with a fierce drive to make work. Once we started we couldn't stop! From an early stage, we found ourselves collecting articles, anecdotes and archives that encouraged us to question our society and the way we live now. Our work came from this creative dialogue. Though our work is always politically aware, these ideas are exlpored with a playful curiosity. Audiences praise our company for posessing an elegance and vitality that keeps our work fresh and innovative. We use physical theatre, live music and choral narrative to tell our stories. Our style has been likened to that of Berkoff, David Lynch, and the early works of Tim Burton.
Over the past year we have produced 4 professional productions; Pool No Water (Mark Ravenhill), Dead End (Scram Productions), The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs (Mike Daisey), and we would love to showcase our latest and greatest production, Wild Kind Cabaret, at the Free Fringe this year.
Praise for Wild Kind: "With their fourth show 'Wildkind', new young Bristol outfit Scram Productions experiment with their own take on the classic genre of cabaret. A trio of talented musicians and a quartet of performers shake up a cocktail of songs and stories, and pour it with a camply eccentric style in a threadbare yet cosy cafe setting. Done on a shoestring, it's seductive enough to make Scram worth keeping an eye out for." Rina Vergano (Theatre Critic, Theatre Bristol)
Praise for The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs: "This was a top class production. It held my attention throughout, entertained me and informed me about something crucial: labour conditions in iphone factories. It was tight - not one second wasted. The acting was visceral and to the bone. Four actors on a white set generated WAY more variety and inventiveness than any lavish production. I had given up on the theatre (been let down too many times) - this production has restored my faith." Elizabeth Winkler (Theatre Critic, Theatre Bristol)
