Bawds Theatre Company


Bawds was founded in 1981 in Cambridge, initially to present productions of restoration plays. It was later decided to broaden the theatrical scope of the company by presenting a wider variety of pieces. As a result of this decision, Bawds has since staged many plays by modern authors. The company has used many different types of venues for its productions, ranging from college gardens and studio spaces to traditional proscenium arch theatres.

Now recognised as a leading Cambridge amateur dramatic production company we present three major productions a year and one or two festival or studio productions, some of which have been toured as far as The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Bawds has no formal membership.

The company is administered by an elected committee.
