Bash Street is a small independent theatre company founded in 1991 by partners, Simon Pullum and JoJo Pickering.
Based in Penzance in Cornwall, we have built an international reputation performing fast-moving, silent-comedy, street theatre shows with live musical accompaniment.
Since our first performance, in Morlaix, France in 1991, we have created 25 different productions and toured to major festivals throughout the UK, and in more than 20 European countries, as well as in Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and South Korea.
On the eve of our 30th anniversary year, Bash Street Theatre has become even more of a family affair, with two of our younger generation joining the company – our son Lochlann Pickering and our niece Kesha Pullum – enabling us to rehearse together in spite of Covid19.
We were thus one of the first outdoor theatre companies in the UK to perform again after the first lockdown, starting at the spectacular Minack Theatre in Cornwall.
