Theatre West was formed in 1990 by Joint Artistic Directors Alison Comley and Ann Stiddard with the aim of producing exciting, innovative and, above all, accessible theatre.

Our first productions were at the Showboat pub on Gloucester Road in Bristol. In 1997 we worked with the brewery Scottish and Newcastle to convert the function room of the Alma Tavern in Clifton, Bristol into a purpose built 50 seat theatre, and made the move to our present home.

We produce an autumn season each year focusing on late 20th century and new writing, and make an annual visit to the Studio at the Bristol Old Vic.

We have also toured Latvia on several occasions where we have cemented strong cultural links, and have been regular visitors to the Edinburgh Fringe.
