Playmate Theatre Malmö is a professional English-language theatre company in Malmö, southern Sweden, bringing small-cast, intimate, contemporary plays of relevance to Swedish and international audiences. We collaborate with invited guest directors  and at times with other theatre companies in the region, on joint or guest productions. We usually perform at blackbox theatre Bastionen in Malmö and when possible tour to Copenhagen and Hamburg. We aim to perform one to two strong choices of play a year, a mixture of straight dramas and dramatic comedies, by playwrights we feel are exciting and whose writing works successfully and internationally. Playmate performs in English and auditions for actors as needed. 

Come to us for a touch of off-Broadway theatre magic in Scandinavia!

THEATRE IN ENGLISH

"...Playmate har hittat en nisch i regionens teaterliv som behöver fyllas. Med tre uppsättningar på ett år har Playmate Theatre fått upp farten och hittat publiken. Det ska bli spännande att se vilken riktning ensemblen tar i framtiden."

Sydsvenskan, 2018

Playmate Theatre Malmö was set up in 2017 by three British actors, living and working in Malmö, hoping to fill a niche in the local theatre scene in Skåne. 

With  critically renowned, contemporary English-language scripts - by playwrights such as Alan Bennett, David Ives and Peter Shaffer - Playmate aims to produce theatre that has wit, repartee, passion and relevance.

Like all actors we have an enormous love of words, but there is no denying the value of entertainment to an audience and the power of a good story. Some plays just sound better in their native language. Other well-loved English-language plays are perhaps unfamiliar to a Scandinavian audience.

This is your chance to see them.

"Without danger Mr. Bardolph, there is no theatre!"

Lettice and Lovage by Peter Shaffer (2018)

"None of my business. I'm just an actrice. Kinda bright in here. Mind if I change the lights?"

Vanda Jordan, Venus in Fur by David Ives (2017)

"I'm not just gonna sit here and wait for the phone to ring. No fear... You see, the more you have to offer as a person, the better you are as an actor. Acting is really just giving"

Lesley, Her Big Chance, from Alan Bennett's Talking Heads (2017)
