Tiny Light is an Oxford based theatre company creating work for babies, children and young adults. We are currently SPARK Supported Artists at Pegasus Theatre.

We are currently touring both of our Early Years shows, The Paper Moon and POP! Our first show for under 3s, The Paper Moon, made its debut at the brilliant Offbeat Festival in June 2017 and has since toured the UK.   A gently interactive piece for babies and very young children (and their grown-ups!) it was followed by POP! a gentle exploration of bubbles, balloons, bath time and bedtime for 0-3 year olds and their families. POP! begins its tour in September 2019.

Founded in 2013 by Anna Tolputt and Ceri Ashcroft our first production, Cat in the Cupboard (the extraordinary tale of an expanding cat for 4-7 year olds, where cats roam large and small girls are very very clever) was developed with the support of Pegasus Theatre, Chipping Norton Theatre, The Orange Tree, Barefoot Books and Little Angel. Cat in the Cupboard premiered at Little Angel’s FIRSTS festival in March 2014 and has since been touring festivals and rural venues.

With the kind support of Pegasus Theatre, we run monthly artist-led creative sessions, Idiots in the Dark, for professional theatre makers.  The actors, writers, directors and musicians who attend can use these sessions to explore ideas and share theatrical opportunities.

Although Idiots is currently on hiatus, shows that began life here are still going strong!  We recommend visiting our excellent friends and colleagues at Human Story Theatre and Wild Boor Ideas.
