See You On The Other Side

See you on the other side.

That’s what we say to each other before a show. Our own ritual. Or perhaps we should say, said. That’s what we said to each other before a show. Because that’s it. Third Angel has ceased trading.

We’ve been really busy dealing with the legal, logistical and ‘wouldn’t it be nice if we could’ to-do lists in the run up to this hard deadline. And we haven’t got everything we wanted to do done, of course. The legal stuff will carry on for a few more months, but 31 July marks the end of our activity as a company. So this is a fairly practical final blogpost. Any more reflective thoughts on what it was like to close the company will have to come later.

We’ve made as much of our work available for free as we can. On this site you find show texts for:

The Paradise Project
Inherited Cities
The Lad Lit Project
Cape Wrath

The Life & Loves of a Nobody
600 People

There are full length videos up of

The Life & Loves of a Nobody
600 People
The Lad Lit Project
Cape Wrath
Hang Up

What I Heard About the World


9 Billion Miles From Home

There’s this great song from Partus.

There are short films and performances for camera and short documentations in The Film Room, including Realtime and With The Light On, which we’ve never put online before.

The scripts of Where From Here, Presumption, What I Heard About the World and The Department of Distractions continue to be available digitally on Drama Online and physically and as ebooks from Bloomsbury.

Our physical archive has been donated to the Theatre Collection at the University of Bristol. Once they have catalogued it, it will be accessible to the public and included in their online database. Their full collection is amazing and we are pleased and humbled to be part of it.

We are delighted have secured a future for Future Makers with Sharrow Community Forum, so the young people can continue to create and explore in their beloved new home of the Highfield Adventure Playground.


Thank you. Thank you to all of you collaborators, team, audiences, participants, partners, funders and supporters. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to make and share the shows and activities with you all. We have learned so much. We’re proud of what we have achieved - and we couldn’t have done it without you. 

We’re looking forward to new adventures - adventures we can only embark on because of what we have been able to do for the last 28 years.

Thank you.

Take care.

See you on the other side.

There's lots more information about making and touring Third Angel projects 2008-2017 on our original blog, and 2017-2023 on the blog on this site.
