Splice Productions is a Bristol-based company run by Robert Gwilym and Katharine Rogers.
Splice Theatre fuses different forms of media in a raw and eclectic way to produce witty and thrilling shows that are accessible to all.
Our first production, Macbeth, was co-produced with Bristol Old Vic Theatre (2006). Fusing original film and stage action, Macbeth was a sell-out success which featured in the top three of Venue magazine's Most Exciting Theatre Productions in the South West. Sponsors Lloyds TSB invested £8000 in the production, which was subsequently nominated for an Arts & Business Award.
"It's hard to think of a better setting for Barrie Keeffe's 1979 play about racist police than Bridewell Island," wrote The Guardian on our production of Sus, staged in 2009 at Bristol's former police headquarters. Funded by South West Screen and Arts Council England, this site-specific production also featured archive footage of the 1979 General Election and the St. Paul's protests.
Our first new writing commission is The Dug Out by Amanda Whittington, which received a rehearsed reading at Bristol Old Vic in 2010 and goes into production in May 2013 at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol. In January 2011, our production of Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas opened at the Tobacco Factory's Brewery Theatre prior to a national tour.
Our freelance work includes Bob's recent appearance in acclaimed new play The Thrill of Love at St. James Theatre, London. Kath will be directing My Judy Garland Life at Nottingham Playhouse in January 2014.
