Mikron Theatre Company logo


We annually commission two scripts with original music, that we perform ‘in rep’ touring by road in Spring and Autumn and, in Summer, on board our historic narrowboat, Tyseley. We are the only company to tour professional theatre to canal and riverside venues by inland waterways.

Our work is rooted in social history and contemporary movements, rarely explored in an artistic context, with the specific aim of increasing audiences’ awareness of important events, their context, their relevance to contemporary issues, and in opening debate and inviting curiosity.

70 years of the NHS!

All is not well at St Monica’s Hospital.

They’re on life support; facing bugs, bed-blockers and a battle to save A & E.

With tunes, transfusions and titters, join Mikron as we make a surgical strike on the state of our NHS.

Fight for the vote

London. 1918.

Sylvia Pankhurst meets Lettie Tuner and they push together to Parliament, to bend the ear of the Cabinet.

Full of political satire, song and more suffrage societies than you can shake a stick at!
