“What Off The Middle have done with their combined creative talents is remarkable. ” Pippa Kelly (The Guardian - The Telegraph)
Off the Middle was founded by Matthew Seager, Stephanie Withers and Euan Tyre. We met at the University of Leeds where we quickly discovered our shared passion for making theatre, and have been making work together ever since.
We are interested in creative storytelling, dynamic new writing, and collaborative ways of making theatre. To experiment with developing and cultivating an active audience-performer relationship, and exploring new and exciting ways to tell important stories, is something we are truly passionate about.
Off the Middle produce original shows including ‘In Other Words’ by Matthew Seager, ‘Lead Suspect’ by Stephanie Withers and 'Medicine' by Meghan Tyler. Moving forward into 2019 we are excited to continue to work with other writers and develop more new plays.
The company have been awarded grants from Arts Council England and Farnham Maltings to develop their work, as well as the Emerging Artists residency at the Lyric Hammersmith in 2016.
