About

Our history

Founded as The Women’s Theatre Group in 1973 Sphinx Theatre Company, renamed in 1990, has been in the vanguard of promoting, advocating and inspiring women in the arts through productions, conferences and research for more than 40 years. Previous work includes the premiere of April de Angelis’ modern classic Playhouse Creatures, Pam Gems’ The Snow Palace and Bryony Lavery’s Goliath, plus the Glass Ceiling and Vamps, Vixens and Feminists conferences with the National Theatre, Young Vic, Southbank Centre and West Yorkshire Playhouse. In 2015 Sphinx produced Women Centre Stage Heroines Festival at the National Theatre, and in 2016 Power Play at Hampstead Theatre, each year showcasing 25 exciting new theatre pieces with women at their centre.

Here at Sphinx we are happy to receive unsolicited scripts and try to see as much work as possible throughout the year. Please contact us on info@sphinxtheatre.co.uk with any enquiries of this matter. If you would like to know more about the history of Sphinx we no longer keep the company archive on the premises. Our archive is held as part of the Theatre and Performance collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum which can be accessed online HERE.
Access to the archive in person is by appointment only.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages.
