Bellow Theatre

'Gently poetic, salt-tinged storytelling' Lyn Gardner

Bellow Theatre are a Hull-based new-writing company rooted in brave and stirring stories

Our work is intimate, moving and celebrates DIY aesthetics, usually with a nod towards open landscapes and the smell of cut grass. Bellow always try to champion the downtrodden, forgotten, excluded or silenced; we usually look at fairy tales or folk stories with a modern take on female characters, sometimes bringing live music into the mix. 

We often present work in unusual spaces, so far including a pop-up restaurant, under an oak tree, in a club, and a carpark, and are equally at home in a shiny studio theatre.

Led by Maureen Lennon and Tabitha Mortiboy, Bellow are Supported Artists of Hull Truck Theatre and an Emerging Company of New Diorama Theatre 2017/18; in 2015 our show Billy Through the Window was nominated for the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence. We have be commissioned to make work for Assemble Fest (The Cautionary Tale of Horrid Ham Carver 2015, The Washerwomen's Warning 2016, Gobble 2017), The Amy Johnson Festival, Heads Up Festival and York Theatre Royal’s On Our Turf initiative. 

Our current show, Bare Skin On Briny Waters is touring to three venues this October. Catch us in Cleethorpes on the 2nd at MOON ON THE WATER, in Leeds on the 3rd/4th at STAGE@LEEDS, and in Hull on the 6th/7th at HULL TRUCK THEATRE

You can also see our show THE WASHERWOMEN'S WARNING at Morley Arts Festival on the 30th of September. Tickets HERE.
