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 excited to be able to share our new season with you. Our brilliant audience has come with us on a wonderful journey over the past few years; thank you for your support and your willingness to take risks and back your local theatre.

This season, we have one of the most exciting new plays yet to share with you. Cardiff’s Gary Owen, whose work for the Sherman includes the world wide hit Iphigenia in Splott and the Royal Court co-produced Killology, has written a reimagined The Cherry Orchard. This thrilling new interpretation of Chekhov’s masterpiece is a signifi cant new work; political and deeply moving, it’s also hilarious. This revelatory new work is a real addition to the Welsh canon. Don’t miss it as it premieres right here.

At Christmas, our annual family extravaganza of actor-musician led theatrical magic is The Wind in the Willows; and for younger audiences, a new version by Alun Saunders of The Magic Porridge Pot / Hud y Crochan Uwd. Festive delights, in both our brilliant auditoria. Take your pick, or treat yourself to both!

With a curated season that serves up some of the very best of contemporary theatre from across the UK, the Sherman is the place to come. We are here for you; this is your theatre. Come and make yourself at home.
