Welcome to BadApple Theatre Company

Badapple Theatre Company are one of the most prolific and original rural touring companies in the UK, working under the artistic direction of established comedy writer Kate Bramley.

Based in rural North Yorkshire we specialise in taking high quality, original comic performances to the smallest of venues nationwide.

Find out more about our current productions, past shows, our youth theatre work and how to book us for one of your venues.

"Bramley's dialogue fizzes with life, energy and humour and her storytelling and direction are constantly inventive"

York Press

"Full marks all round to Badapple, North Yorkshire’s own “doorstep theatre” enterprise"

Northern Echo

"This is a production brimming with creativity and talent and a large feather in the cap for Badapple Theatre."

The Press

"You might be sitting in a village hall somewhere but what you will get will be up there with West End standards of performance, lighting and design – and at a fraction of the cost"
