Welcome To The Chronicle Theatre Company

About Us

We are a charity dedicated to advancing the arts, specifically drama, for the benefit of all.

Two former Royal Shakespeare Company actors, Julian Curry and Mary Chater with the Italian theatre manager, Sandro Pascucci, founded the company in 2014 in Italy. The company was then re established as a UK registered charity in 2016. A programme of productions, educational workshops and summer schools in the UK and Italy was undertaken with the support of grants, including from Arts Council England.

In early 2023 a new board was constituted to put in motion the objective of taking productions with associated workshops into schools and prisons.

Our aim is to enhance understanding and appreciation of the works of Shakespeare to explore how we can breathe new life into the stories - a representative chronicle of our times. We will encourage our audience and participants to connect with society to realise their hopes and talents for the future through the transformative power of Shakespeare and theatre.

Our patrons are Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, and Rachel Treweek.


The company's workshop leader proposed some scenes from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and ' The London Sketch.' This helped the students to work in an unusual and stimulating way, away from their normal curriculum, which doesn't usually include theatrical perfomances and encouraged them to approach language learning in a quite different manner.
