Bringing the best of English-language theatre to Scandinavia...

...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.

Some of the best English playwriting & stories of the twentieth century on stage.

There'll be a sprinkling of toffee, the odd soft centre, some bitter coffee crème...

"Without danger Mr. Bardolph, there is no theatre!" 
Lettice Douffet, Lettice and Lovage by Peter Shaffer 

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. We offer quality English-language theatre, small-cast intimate plays, for Swedes and international audiences.

We are currently touring with Peter Shaffer's Lettice and Lovage and have a new repertoire for Malmö in Spring 2019.

In  our first season of English language plays in Malmö,  -  by playwrights Alan Bennett, David Ives and Peter Shaffer - Playmate aimed 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.

"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

"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
