Zenana Theatre Company

Patrons: Julie Christie and Harriet Walter

Zenana Theatre Company, noted for its powerful performances and high production values was founded in 1991 by Madeleine Wynn. In its first year Zenana presented two world premieres: the first by Australian poet Billy Marshall-Stoneking which opened at the same time as The Sydney Theatre Company's production in Australia; the second by leading British playwright Tom Kempinski which was described by Sir Peter Hall as “a profound experience… …breaking new ground” and “an honest and disturbing experience which must be seen”.

Both plays were acclaimed by critics and public alike. 16 Words for Water was named one of the Top Ten productions of 1992 by Theatre Record.

The Critics

16 Words for Water

“Zenana Theatre Company's interpretation guarantees that the audience is encouraged to further pursue their work.”

Di Parker


“The best emotional, imaginative and spiritual questions…a production of undoubted intelligence.”

Benedict Nightingale
The Times


“Madeleine Wynn has created a convincing and stifling world in which poetry and modern definitions of lunacy are disturbingly entwined.”

Rosalind Garry
The Guardian


“The clarity and precision of Madeleine Wynn's production disguises a morass of complexity and elusiveness… a fine production of a valuable work."

Michael Wright
Time Out


“The play is vigorously animated by director Madeleine Wynn…Tom Georgeson gives a blistering portrayal of the poet (Ezra Pound).”

Michael Arditti
Evening Standard


When the Past is Still to Come


“…marked by extraordinary honesty…Kempinski has been fearless in self exposure and Castle plays him with searing passion and supreme skill.”

Michael Arditti
Evening Standard


Madeleine Wynn directs this honest and moving confessional.”- Gillian Piggott

The Stage


“Kempinski’s honesty is breathtaking…riveting…not, by any means a comfortable evening, but one in which we see enough of ourselves to emerge genuinely unnerved.”

Michael Billington
The Guardian


“Powerfully directed.”

Sheridan Morley
The Herald Tribune


“…an unflinching look at human pain, loss and rage—it's all there—a brave work which will no doubt appeal only to the open minded few, yet there has never been a time when such self exploration was more desperately needed.”

Sue Webster
This is London


“Kempinski charts the unmoving progress of this inner ebb and flow with courage, humour and a cunning sense of theatricality.”

John Peter
The Sunday Times


“…beautifully balanced. Madeleine Wynn's production avoids self pity.”

Martin Hoyle
The Times


Albertine in Five Times


“This is a fine fringe production and Madeleine Wynn's directions of the web of interaction is carefully worked in Zenana Theatre Company's strongly cast production.”

Kate Basset
The Times


“A delicate and sensitive exploration…to be applauded for its realistic approach…beautifully animated by Madeleine Wynn.”

Naomi Cowan

Main house production Chester Gateway Theatre
Strangers on a Train


“Madeleine Wynn's absorbing production has a cinemaic flow. The acting too is evocating of fifties film noir.”
