About Us 

Strickland productions is a bold, new production company specialising in fringe theatre, immersive experiences, and mixed reality performance. We blend theatre with other art forms, as well as history, science and technology to create live experiences for our audiences that they have never felt before and cannot experience elsewhere. We are currently working on three shows for the next Edinburgh Festival Fringe as well as our first Augmented Reality performance piece so watch this space.

Over the past three years we have taken 5 shows up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with commercial and critical success and we are hoping to continue that with our two shows this year; Apollo: Take 111 and Polly: A Drag Rebellion. 

Strickland Productions is run by Joe Strickland, a prolific, up-and-coming writer, director, producer, performer and set designer with great energy and passion. Since 2012 he has been producing, directing, and marketing all manner of productions in venues across the country. These shows are listed below. He is also a multi-award winning magician, an accomplished musician, a developing artist with the Nottingham Playhouse and a studio member with Near Now.

 

He is also currently a PhD researcher looking at Future Experience Technologies and Storytelling with the Horizon CDT, University of Nottingham and the BBC.
