At the heart of Gruffdog Theatre is the shared desire to make theatre that is vibrant, dynamic and powerfully emotive. We believe that spectacle is a communicator, and strive to create work that is visually and aurally beautiful, employing puppetry, music and ensemble movement to colour the stories we tell.
Ensemble playing of the highest order. This is a company who are totally in tune, musically and physically... Enchanting, enriching and entirely joyful

Gruffdog Theatre was formed as a student company at Oxford University in 2015 where it performed three sell out runs. The company was a driving force behind the refurbishment of the now highly successful Michael Pilch Studio in Oxford and were the first to perform in the new theatre (Julius Caesar, 2015). Having just finished its first U.K. tour, Gruffdog is embarking on its next project and continues to grow, both in numbers and experience.
