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

Bristol-based Theatre Company – Winners of the Joan Pickthall Award for Best Original Play at Bristol One Act Drama Festival 2013 & 2014.


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.
