The E.O.T.A.S.I. Theatre Company


EOTASI is a Bristol-based theatre company.



Our debut play, a two-hander entitled “Jack” written by James A. Bonser played at The Little Black Box Theatre on 20th & 21st July 2012! David Cole played the role of Captor and Patrick McHugh played Prisoner. 


JACK returned in a new production of the play at The Bristol One-Act Play Festival, held at The Olympus Theatre on Wednesday 6th February 2013! In this production, the role of Captor was played by the playwright James A. Bonser and won the award for Best Original Writing. Patrick McHugh won the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Prisoner.



The company appeared at the One Act Festival at the Olympus Theatre again in 2014 with Alex Needham's dark comedy "The P.O.G. Act". The company was awarded the Best Original Play trophy for the second year running.


We played to packed houses at the Bierkeller Theatre in June 2014, with our production of Harold Pinter's "Betrayal".


We are now taking a break to focus on other projects.


In the meantime you can follow us on Twitter - @EOTASI_Theatre.

Key Projects

JACK (2012)

A man is awakened, held prisoner within an eerily familiar basement with only his cryptic captor for company. Over the course of an evening, the two embark upon a deeply psychological journey, exploring each other’s past, present and uncertain future until a shocking realisation uncovers a disturbing personal truth that threatens both of their lives.

The P.O.G. Act (2013)

Three Candidates. One Job. In the future, three applicants attend an interview for one of the last remaining jobs in the country. As the applicants discuss their previous successes and their current chance of employment, we come to realise just what they are expected to do and how far the Government will go to help its subjects...

Betrayal by Harold Pinter (2014)

Emma is married to publisher Robert but involved in a long term affair with literary agent Jerry. In reverse chronology, the play follows Emma and Jerry's affair from the end to the beginning. The play deals with the ever changing dynamics between all the characters. With both betraying spouses, it is unclear who really knows what and where the real Betrayal lies.
