Elysium Theatre Company started with a conversation between director Jake Murray and actor Danny Solomon in the cafe in Waterstones in Manchester in 2016. Jake was in Durham, Danny was in Manchester. They had worked together before. Why not create a company to bring theatre to the North?
The goal was to start with northern premieres, plays that had been seen all across the world – London, New York, Dublin etc – which had never been done in the north east or north west. Gradually we would work our way up to classics and new plays of our own.
Its been quite a time since our humble beginnings in 2017. Onwards to the future and our post-Covid world!
