Cygnet Theatre, Friars Gate
|Founder||Monica Shallis & Mary G Evans|
It was founded in 1980 out of an association between Monica Shallis (1939−2006), Mary G. Evans (born 1934) and the Northcott Theatre, Exeter, then under the direction of Richard Digby Day. It operates as a working theatre company, regularly producing plays to a professional standard, both at the Cygnet Theatre and on tour, giving its students a first-hand experience of life in the theatre industry. It is one of the smallest drama schools in the UK, only taking four students a year (twelve at any time across three years). Its Patron is Peter Brook.
The Cygnet Theatre performs around six productions a year at the Cygnet Theatre, and visiting companies also perform regularly.
