About Us

Pursued by a Bear is an award winning theatre and digital film producer. We are Company in Residence at Trestle Arts Base in St Albans.

We produce new writing by some of the UK’s most distinctive voices.  Much of our work is global in setting and scope (our last four productions were set variously in India, Russia, Africa and between the UK and the USA).

Founded in 1998, we have commissioned and produced over 15 new theatre commissions for UK tour as well as a feature length film in 2012 and numerous short films made in educational/participatory settings.  We have run script writing workshops and offered bespoke dramaturgical support to professional playwrights as well as emerging talent.

We work with award winning designers, choreographers and film makers to create a striking and unforgettable theatre experience.  Our work is atmospheric, thought provoking and passionate.

In 2017 our American co-producers – Tiny Dynamite – led the US transfer of The Lamellar Project by Grant Watson. The show was re-conceived for a Philadelphia audience and re-named Perfect Blue.

In Autumn 2017 the Directors and Trustees of PBAB were delighted to announce that Rosamunde Hutt would become the company’s fourth Artistic Director.
