About Us

Fury Theatre is a female-led theatre company making socially-minded work centred on the female gaze and the female voice for audiences of all genders to open up the conversation around the female experience. 

Our Story

Fury Theatre was established in 2020 by writer and actor Laura Turner as a home for regionally made work focused on female stories told with fire. Based in Lincoln in the Midlands, Fury is proud to collaborate with amazing regionally based creatives in all disciplines. 

We create work that asks big questions about who we are today, where we've come from and what makes us feel fire, passion, lust, fury - big emotions that we don't necessarily have easy outlets for in our busy lives where everything is pushed beneath the surface. 

 

Taking inspiration from the Furies of Greek mythology, who sought revenge on wrongdoing against women, we make challenging, provocative, socially-engaged work with a focus on bringing diverse female voices into the creative process on and off stage. Our work is informed through research and development with our primary target audience of women aged 18-35. We want our work to appeal to an audience of all genders, however, and we believe that to be a feminist is to be an equalist; we welcome the chance to collaborate with like-minded creatives of all genders, sexualities and backgrounds. 

 

Fury is about starting a conversation: what makes us angry, and what are we going to do about it? We want to encourage solution-minded conversation around the problems facing young women today and put their voices at the heart of accessible, engaging, loud, fun, ferocious, furious theatre-making.
