We make exceptional theatre for the people of Cardiff and want to share it with you – theatre about the world we live in, theatre that is relevant to our lives and has real meaning.

Alongside our own productions we curate work for you to enjoy. Sherman Theatre is your place to think, feel and lose yourself in..



I am so pleased to be able to share our spring programme with you. After the success of our production of Gary Owen’s radical The Cherry Orchard, it feels as though our journey with you, our audiences, grows in depth and in scope. This spring, we open with Conor McPherson's exquisite play Dublin Carol. Directed by one of the most exciting directors in the UK, Matthew Xia, this piece is imbued with McPherson’s dark and beautiful comedy. Then, we co-produce the outside London UK premiere of The Motherf**ker with the Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis with Tron Theatre, Glasgow. This edgy, elegiac play has a sharp intensity and wit. Deeply funny and moving, this is a major new production of this extraordinary play. Later, we premiere Tremor by Welsh playwright Brad Birch; this vital play adds to the ground-breaking new work we have produced. We also co-produce again with the RWCMD on the NEW project; a new play by Katherine Chandler. Sherman is known for developing Welsh artists, and we are delighted to support the next generation of acting talent.

Added to these Sherman productions is a brilliant selection of work that we bring to you because we think you will love it. Our commitment to being the most vital theatre in the country continues. This is because of you, our audiences. You have told us that you believe in us. For that, we are grateful. And we will continue to do you proud.
