Utter is a new work theatre company, dedicated to developing and touring exhilarating story-led work – from large theatres to village pubs – that make audiences feel, think and experience the world in a new light.
Utter is led by co-artistic directors Gareth Nicholls and Joe Douglas and places collaboration and talent development at its heart. The company works with a diverse array of exceptional artists to tell urgent theatrical stories, that say something about the world around us in fresh adventurous ways.
Utter’s first show was Educating Ronnie, which opened to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2012 as part of the Made In Scotland showcase, where it won a Fringe First, Runner-up Scottish Arts Club Award and was shortlisted for the Brighton Fringe and Royal National Theatre Foundation Award respectively. It has since gone on to tour extensively across Scotland and will later this year tour the rest of the UK.
The second show Bloody Trams, produced by the Traverse Theatre in association with Utter, was part of the Traverse Theatre’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014 programme; a rapid response verbatim piece that opened for a short-run in March 2014, selling out and receiving exceptional four star reviews across the board.
Coming soon is Stand By by Adam McNamara, produced by Utter in association with The Byre, which will preview at The Byre in St Andrews before opening as part of the Summerhall programme at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and touring in the Autumn 2017.
