welcome to firebird theatre

"Following the passing of Jane Sallis 16th August 2018, it is with deep regret that we announce Firebird Theatre productions have ceased. The group's legacy is here for all to peruse; the history of the group, the performers, credits for those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes, the performances they took all over the country, and some of the many testimonials received. Further announcements, and news about an Archive Project being undertaken to further pay tribute to all the performers over the years, will follow."

Please click here for feedback and reviews of A Spark and a Beating Heart from our audience at Trinity Centre, Bristol 11 - 13 May 2017.

Firebird Theatre are a unique group of disabled theatre-makers, spanning generations. They have been making theatre together for 25 years. Their experiences tell stories of shifting attitudes towards difference and disability; of understanding and ignorance.

Firebird Theatre is proud to be an Associate Company of Bristol Old Vic and to have Olivier Award winner, Kathryn Hunter, as its patron.
