The aim – to maintain a high standard of entertainment and thoughtful use of dialogue, expressed by a wide variety of characters and actors through the means of new and original writing, drama and comedy. They have since been joined by the talented Al Wadlan, Chrissy Marshall and Jen Weatherhead, all of whom share the responsibilities of bringing Middle Weight Theatre’s ideas and creativity to life.
