Only Lucky Dogs Theatre

Only Lucky Dogs Theatre was formed in January 2018 to make unusual, absurd and entertaining original theatre. Since then we have created several shows, attended the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and performed in venues across Sheffield. Each show we make involves many more than just the five of us, drawing on the skills of creatives and technicians from Sheffield and across the UK. We make theatre that intrigues audiences and investigates something new about humanity, mining the depths of characters that are, on the surface, ordinary.

We’re based at Portland Works as the first ever resident theatre company, hosting brilliant emerging theatre-makers from Sheffield and beyond in the Makerspace, as well as producing our own work. We look forward to welcoming a wide audience through the doors of the Makerspace and ensuring equality of access to exciting, high quality theatre, no matter someone’s background.
