About Frenetic Fox:



Frenetic Fox are one of two resident theatre companies based at Creative WorkSpace in Withywood, South Bristol. CWS is a venue for both professional creatives to make work & for the community to participate in the arts.


The venue opens in May 2017 and is hosted by fellow Bristol theatre company Brave Bold Drama (https://www.brave-bold-drama.co.uk/)

Frenetic Fox is a Dorset/Bristol based company which cultivates theatre that strives to be daring, dynamic and distinctive.


The company draws inspiration from personal experiences growing up in a world saturated by online networking and irresponsible media - echoing the landscape of our current social and political climate. FF likes to incorporate original music along with imaginative visual elements and the spoken word.


We create theatre which reflects the modern appetite for storytelling in a world where Netflix rules the roost.



Frenetic Fox also serve as a production outfit for other artist and collectives wishing to develop new material - helping to curate new work of other theatre practitioners. The company offers creative support, rehearsal space and the umbrella of Frenetic Fox Productions to the artist/s.

Furthermore it also co-produces live/site specific performance and events for train and tramways nationwide (in collaboration with Josh Castree).

Frenetic Fox commenced a year-long, part-time residency for the LEAP project (Local Emerging Artists Platform) at Weymouth College in Dorset (September 2016). Within this time-frame the company developed their debut show 'Appily Ever After'.
