BedlamB Theatre - The Players

Almost all the Company were trained by Craig Snelling at the Actors’ Studio.  Following graduation the group formed BedlamB.  The Company’s first production was by Kim Sanger White and Joe Clark.  Now there are 11 key production members who participate in all aspects of production, directing, acting, stage, set props, publicity and generally whatever it takes to put on a show!

Often, our work tends to explore the subject of dysfunctional personalities and the disorder of life.  Over the past 6-7 years our productions have included previously published work by well known playwrights. We are always working on devising projects and regularly hold new play readings.

Our Name

It would seem acceptable to say that we got our name from the section of South East London where we trained,  near the site of the original Bedlam Asylum. The truth of the matter is – it took us too long to decide on a name and someone shouted “its bedlam here!” and thus we were born. The final B serves to differentiate us from the other theatre group based in Scotland.
