OMNIBUS THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
In November 2013, Omnibus launched its inaugural artistic season with Woyzeck, an original centenary production of Georg Büchner’s seminal play. Sold-out performances, critical acclaim, and nominations for off-West End awards set the marker our ever-expanding program of innovative, high quality work.
Omnibus’ second in-house production was a site-specific immersive show which opened on Clapham Common in the heart of winter, drawing audiences into the strange world of the Witches.

Inspired by the events of the Peru Two, Mule explores the murky, hedonistic network of drug smuggling and it’s apparent femaleisation. Award-winning playwright Kat Woods explores the complex roles of victimhood, media spin and personal tragedy in this flawless two-hander.
