Based in the heart of Cardiff, Sherman Theatre is a leading producing house with a particular focus on the development and production of new work.

Sherman Theatre makes and curates theatre for audiences in Wales, across the UK and internationally and develops the work of Welsh and Wales based artists.

The Sherman generates opportunities for the citizens of Cardiff to connect with theatre through inspiring and visionary engagement.

In 2018 Sherman Theatre became the first in Wales to win the Regional Theatre of the Year title at The Stage Awards, recognising the Sherman as the most exciting theatre in the UK, outside of London.

In April 2018, Sherman Theatre’s production of Killology by Gary Owen and directed by former Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre. This was a co-production with London's Royal Court Theatre
