The Bunker

The Bunker believes in artists. We give ambitious artists a home in which to share their work with adventurous audiences. We are champions of each company that we programme, and we want to ensure our stage is filled with exhilarating and contemporary theatre featuring artists that represent the world that we live in.

With four concrete pillars marking out a large thrust performance space, an eclectic mix of audience seating on three sides of the stage, and a craft beer bar, The Bunker is a visceral and unique performance space with a character of its own.

The Bunker was opened in October 2016 by founding directors Joshua McTaggart and Joel Fisher.The theatre’s first year of work included the award-winning sell-out show Skin A Cat, CardboardCitizen’s 25th Anniversary epic Home Truths, and the world premiere of 31 Hours. In-house productions include My White Best FriendAbigailEyes Closed, Ears Covered and Devil With The Blue Dress.

In September 2018, Artistic Director Chris Sonnex joined Executive Director David Ralf to lead the theatre’s small but dedicated team, several of whom were involved in the original conversion of an underground car park into The Bunker space. Bunker Theatre Productions CIC is a not-for-profit theatre, which currently receives no public subsidy.
