What we're about

Playmate Theatre Malmö is southern Sweden's professional small-cast, English-language theatre company. Please join as audience and support group. We'd love to meet you!

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 now in our third season and have presented works by Alan Bennett, David Ives, Peter Shaffer, Roald Dahl, Christopher Durangue, scenes from The Two Ronnies, Monty Python and much more. Playmate aims to produce contemporary English-language theatre that has wit, repartee, passion and relevance. Some comedy, some drama, some a mixture of both.

We also perform in Copenhagen and have luckily been able to play to full houses so far, and even survived just about on box office sales alone. In Malmö we are based at blackbox theatre Bastionen, just opposite Malmö Central Station.

Please come and support the arts and the international community. We feel passionately that live theatre is not only cracking entertainment but possibly a healthy mirror of reality, an escape from the everyday and a chance to reflect, along with a breathing body around you that is a live audience. The intimacy and collective experience of theatre in the round, fringe theatre in a small space - is a far cry from the anonymity of sitting alone at home with Netflix...

But a theatre is nothing without an audience! We aim to put on two plays a year and are always on the lookout for volunteers, and of course professionals and performers, designers, directors, backstage crew, producers, playwrights and admin - you name

it - people with talent, experience and training, to help us on stage and off.

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.
