"GOLEM! sticks up two fingers at Shakespeare purists...
Laura Kressly - The Play's The Thing
According to legend, the Golem is a creature made out of raw clay, re-formed in a new shape, and brought to life with words.
We create theatre by repurposing and reimagining texts, shedding new light on stories you might think you already know.
Our theatre is made by reconstructing the architecture of plays. We look for the hidden stories and try to find justice for the missing pieces. Text is the foundation of our work, but we don't think of it as sacred: we play with words, subverting preconceptions and revealing new meaning.
We resource, repurpose and reimagine stories into bold and irreverent new work.
Our productions submerge the audience in a detailed, intimate world. We forensically explore character to expose the honesty, humour and truth of human relationships, stripping things back to find relatable, real people, who may just happen to be in extreme circumstances.
WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?
GOLEM! are delighted to share that we are mounting a brand new production based on the life and works of Oscar Wilde:
'Is He Earnest?'. The production is playing at Katzpace in London Bridge from the 4th - 7th August
'Is He Earnest' was first workshopped as part of Omnibus Theatre's Engine Room development programme in November 2018.
Earlier last year our production of I Know You of Old appeared at the RSC Dell and returned to London for a one-night-only performance in Katzpace. For more information and reviews click here.
