Natalie Richards

Natalie Richards created Midnight Theatre to conjure the experience of the 1920’s Parisian theatre; Le Theatre du Grand-Guignol (The French Theatre of Horror). Her shows are reminiscent of a typical evening at the Grand-Guignol, where the staple was the Horror play, which inevitably featured eye-gouging, throat slashing or some other equally grisly climax.

As a Homegrown Producer, Midnight Theatre credits include successful horrors – translated from French- The Final Kiss, I want to go home and The Torture Garden (Le Baiser dans la nuit, Rentrez chez Toi, et Le Jardin des Suplices). As well as The Little Mermaid – Not Suitable for Children, and the highly acclaimed sell-out season of a new work Tender Young Creatures. Which is a dark interactive performance work based on Little Red Riding Hood interwoven with the modern theme of girls walking alone at night.

Midnight Theatre also has an education branch with the Eastern suburbs. This is within the private school system.

Actor David can’t get enough, of anything. Alcohol, drugs, women, gambling – whatever it takes to escape and this bender could be his last. Until in the mountains of South -East Asia he is offered a chance at redemption.
