Once Upon a Time (in the summer of 2017), Josie and Imogen lay in a field at Valley Fest, just outside of Bristol. In that moment, they were both blissfully happy. They squinted through the warm sunshine, a cool drink in their hand, live music filling their ears and the gorgeous view of Chew Valley Lake stretched out in front of them.
One of them turned to the other (we forget who) and said, ‘you know, it’s the little things in life that make me really happy’. The other nodded in agreement, and said something like, ‘that should be the name of our theatre company’. And just like that, The Little Things Theatre was born.
The Little Things are a collective of creatives living and working in Bristol. We are predominantly made up of Theatre & Film graduates from the University of Bristol. We have sprung from a common goal of wanting to create theatre that is fresh, imaginative and unique, with a particular focus on engaging children in current topics.
We started conversations back in October 2017 and officially formed the company in March 2018. We have been creating and developing our debut show, A Dog’s Brexit, which toured to venues in May – June 2018. We are now reworking the show for a Primary School Tour 2019, and have plans to start developing a new show next year.
