Doughnut Productions - A unique theatre experience

by DannyUK

Doughnut Productions offer a truly unique theatre experience, being the only theatre in existence with 4 stages and swivel seats for the audience to give you a 360-degree viewing platform.


Following an impressive debut earlier this year presenting two contrasting pieces of new writing, the studio has moved to East London for two new pieces.

Doughnut Productions - Acting

Mid-performance, and at the heart of the audience, the productions are unique in allowing action on - and off - of four separate stages.

Kate Austen, actor and co-founder of the Doughnut Productions, speaks passionately about her company:

The Doughnut Theatre is about to embark on our second production and are being housed in 3 Mills Film Studios Stratford, East London.


We focus mainly on new writing, some our own and others the work of writing interns.


The first production back in April this year was a great success having almost a full sell out run.


We gave the audience feedback forms on the space and have since been working on making the space bigger, better and more comfortable for the audience.

Both new plays have been inspired by feedback that was given at the previous shows, which reveals that the interactive feel runs through the core of the company and doesn’t merely stop with the unique viewing platform that immerses the audience within the play.

He’s going to speak to the one inhabitant who reined carnage on the asylum till the very end… notorious serial killer… Freddie ‘The Butcher’ Jackson.
