Angel Theatre Company is a professional organisation dedicated to producing London fringe theatre of the highest calibre. Our aim is to create work which is entertaining, challenging, engaging and thought provoking. Although we often perform in small venues, we want our audiences to experience the same quality of production as they would in any West End theatre, but for a fraction of the price!


Previous productions include Can’t Stand up for Falling Down, Eavesdropping, More Eavesdropping, 4:48 Psychosis, No Exit, The Maids, Autobahn, Eavesdropping Again and Footfalls & Play. Full details of each show can be viewed on the PAST PRODUCTIONS page.


Our next production will be Stray, an original piece of verbatim theatre, playing at The White Bear in December 2019. This will be followed by a trio of Samuel Beckett plays; Not I, Catastrophe and Rockaby at The Jack Studio Theatre in February-March 2020. For full details of both projects, please visit the CURRENT PRODUCTIONS page.

JOHN PATTERSON - Artistic Director of Angel Theatre Company


John graduated from the University of Hull with an honours degree in drama before training as an actor at ALRA. He has worked extensively in the industry for over 20 years both as an actor and director. Recent acting credits include The Intern (Channel 4), New Tricks (BBC), Murder on the Home Front (ITV) and adverts for Bid TV and Netflix. In December 2017, John played the role of Gerry in a rehearsed reading of Richard Bickley’s new play Signal Failure. This was directed by Richard Cameron, writer of Can’t Stand up for Falling Down. John can next be seen in the Cineworld Christmas advert, which will be screened in cinemas worldwide from November 2019.


In addition to acting, John is an experienced director and the Artistic Director of Angel Theatre Company. Throughout his career, John has directed over 60 productions. Recent credits include an agents showcase for graduate actors in the West End, Can't Stand up for Falling Down at the New Wimbledon Studio Theatre and Mark Ravenhill’s Citizenship at Watermans Arts Centre, which was part of the Royal National Theatre Connections Project 2016. In the summer of 2016, he conceptualised and directed Eavesdropping. Due to its overwhelming success, he created More Eavesdropping in February 2017. Since then he has directed Sarah Kane's 4:48 Psychosis, Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit, Jean Genet’s The Maids, Neil LaBute’s Autobahn and Eavesdropping Again (the third instalment in the ‘eavesdropping’ franchise). Most recently, John directed our 5 star reviewed production of Samuel Beckett’s Footfalls and Play, which enjoyed a sell-out run at The Jack Studio Theatre, London in February and March 2019.
