***** FANTASTIC” The Herald

The Company

The About Turn Theatre Company was created in 2002 by a group of London students, lead by Dan Hyde who has Fringe experience leading back to 1997 with his previous company ‘The Absolute Banana Theatre Company’. Since 2002, the company has produced 24 productions at the Edinburgh Fringe and a number more on the London and Brighton Fringes. Edinburgh productions include 5-star productions of ‘Top Girls’ and ‘Durang B4 Dinner’, and the critically acclaimed production of Mark Ravenhill’s ‘Shopping & F***Ing’ which was chosen to be recorded for the national archives as a work of significance.


Last year, we staged a new production of Gluck's opera 'Orpheus and Eurydice', which furthered our mission to provide professional quality performance opportunities for young aspiring students and graduates.

The company receives no public funding and we are grateful to our many sponsors who each year give anything from £1 and above to support our work.
