Established in 2018, Somna Theatre is a brand new, London-based theatre company. STC aims to focus its body of work on both new writing and established pieces, engaging with the here, now, and tomorrow in nuanced ways.

 

Somna Theatre asks one question before selecting a production; 'why now?'  Why this play, at this specific point in time? We believe in  engaging with the current cultural landscape through theatre, and producing shows that reflect that principle. With an affinity for dark comedy, satire, absurdism, surrealism, and modernism, STC believes in the staging of bold, unique pieces. Our core focus comes down to creating theatre that is, accessible, practical, and story driven.
