“I was a part of Waiting [a verbatim/music-theatre piece about British Muslim women whose husbands were held without trial in Guantanamo & Belmarsh] and I greatly admire Metta Theatre’s commitment to bringing such important issues to the public’s attention, and on this occasion with a production full of creativity, delicacy & emotional power.”

Peter Mumford
“Metta Theatre is a young and exciting company producing innovative and stimulating work and I think that it’s incredibly important to support and help propagate both new work and the up and coming creative artists who produce it. Poppy Burton-Morgan and Will Reynolds, the director/designer team at the centre of the company have consistently created quality and meaningful productions. This company is a force to be reckoned with, and an important new addition to the UK theatre scene.”

Laura Wade
“From eavesdropping on an intimate encounter in a cafe to marvelling at a fantastical world of aerialists, animation and puppetry that strains against the walls of a large theatre, Metta take their audience on a new journey with every show.  Always inventive and striking, the work is characterised by playfulness and curiosity combined with an admirable artistic rigour and sincerity.  I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.”

12 years young. £12,000 to raise. Every donation matters.

We’re all grown up – last year our street-dance and circus production of the Jungle Book played to over 20,000 people.

We have BIG plans – a hip hop Wind in the Willows! a Nigerian Great Expectations!

Over the past three years Metta’s Artistic Director Poppy Burton-Morgan has raised over half a million pounds. And Metta Theatre is a charity – so all profits are ploughed straight back into making our shows bigger and better.

Now we’re asking you to help.

And every contribution really does make a difference to our work:


£ 500.00 – Pays a performer’s wages for one week on tour.
£ 250.00 – Buys the recycled paper on which we print an entire year’s worth of scripts.
£ 100.00 – Buys the fabric for a bespoke costume.
£ 50.00 – Buys a set of glow in the dark juggling balls.
£ 30.00 – Buys the mountboard needed to make a miniature model of the set design for a production.

Thank you!
