The Deck Theatre Company provides high quality theatre, reviving old or rare works as well as devising and producing fresh new theatrical pieces.
We are not constrained to a style or genre but are focused, disciplined and dedicated to producing excellent projects in performance.
FROM THE BEGINNING
Tania Higgins opened The Deck Theatre in Oxford in 2010 following a career in theatre and arts throughout the UK. Tania initially trained in Dramatic Arts at Bretton Hall, formally part of the West Yorkshire Sculpture Park. She then went on to work as a performer and workshop leader and returned to complete her degree in Performance Arts with the University of Wales, Swansea.
With over 20 years experience of performing and as a freelance facilitator, Tania launched The Deck Theatre Company as part of the Ox-fringe Festival.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
Since launching the company in 2010, Tania has been commissioned to work on eight brand new performance projects with The Deck Theatre Company, and has taken shows to the Oxford, Camden and Edinburgh Fringes.
The Deck Theatre Company have also devised, created and facilitated on many workshops, with very varied and differing outcome requirements.
We took a break for a short while, but we are now back and reading scripts and discussing ideas ready for performances in 2018.
