About

Annys Whyatt (she/her) - Creative Producer 

Hello! I am a creative producer, theatre-maker and facilitator with many years experience working in theatres and companies across London. I am originally from Bristol and trained with the Bristol Old Vic Young Company where I first learnt about theatre and new devising techniques and became interested in working in the industry. I have been based in London for over a decade, gaining a first in my undergraduate degree in Drama and Performance and later trained with The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
 

As a creative producer and I've had the privilege to work on some really exciting projects. I’ve had the opportunity to work at some reputable and exciting theatres and companies such as The Old Vic Theatre, Kestrel Theatre, Almeida Theatre and London Bubble Theatre. Through my freelance work, I’ve worked on and help produce workshops, R&Ds and productions of new work led by an array of artists and creatives; managing budgets for productions and projects; drafting contracts and being responsible for all creative freelancers; drafting and maintaining guest lists for press nights and being hands on in the rehearsal room.

As a theatre-maker I have had the opportunity to work with so many artists and companies such as New York Theatre Workshop, Distracted Rat, Somna Theatre, Bristol Old Vic (to name a few), it’s hard to briefly write about them all. In 2018, I co-founded the company; Damsels Reconstructed where we took our debut piece, Three Bloody Marys, Please to Battersea Arts Centre and Southend Fringe Festival. I've also previously worked on a R&D production which was ACE funded to work on Creative Captioning (the captions became a design element and were embedded into the performance rather than just subtitled captions) and how to make theatre more accessible for deaf and people who are hard of hearing. For my theatre-making, I was nominated for an Off West End Award for Best Short Run in 2019 and later in 2021 I became one of the recipients of the Ignite award from Trinity Laban.

​Most recently, I have launched my own company, and have been working on a long term research project called THE SLEEP PROJECT, which is experimenting the fusion of science and live performance. 

​Currently I am working at the Lyric Hammersmith, but if you would like to discuss a project then please get in touch!
