RoughHouse Theatre is an independent theatre company based in the South West, UK and collaborates, writes and devises new pieces of theatre, revisits existing work or adapts from other sources.
Previous projects include collaborations with the Victoria and Albert Museum London, Ben Crystal, Theatre Royal Bath, Tobacco Factory Theatres Bristol, Rondo Theatre Bath, writers Nick Hornby and Daniel Wallace, the Rugby Football Union and the Professional Cricketer’s Association.

RoughHouse makes theatre that explores the absurdity and beauty of the world we live in and the people that inhabit it.

From developing links within the community to supporting new writers and building from scratch, Roughhouse has a nose for good stories and seeks out dynamic and playful people to tell them with.

Previous collaborations have included the Victoria and Albert Museum London, Ben Crystal, Theatre Bath, Theatre Royal Bath, Tobacco Factory Theatres Bristol, Rondo Theatre Bath, writers Nick Hornby and Daniel Wallace, the Rugby Football Union and the Professional Cricketer’s Association.

We make theatre that is playful, engaging and visually exciting.

We love our audiences.

What we make is entirely for them.

When The Eye Has Gone

Portfolio image:

When The Eye Has Gone tells the story of the all too brief life of Colin ‘Ollie’ Milburn – the cricketing legend who was one of England’s most unlikely sporting heroes.

The story swings backwards and forwards in time as he drinks yet another large gin and coke and re-enacts vivid memories including  the triumph of his first Test Century against the West Indies at Lords in 1966 and the disaster of losing his left eye in a car accident in 1969.

When The Eye Has Gone is produced by Roughhouse Theatre and LiveWire Theatre and was commissioned by The Professional Cricketers’ Association
