What Is Mercurius?

Eight-time Offie nominated Theatre Company

Mercurius was set up in 2012 to create theatre that inspired, from new writing to neglected classics, with a style that was intriguing, exciting and entertaining but never dull.

We have just celebrated our 10th anniversary and can’t wait for all the inventive creativity the next 10 years will bring.

After a great revival of ANTON CHEKHOV’S VAUDEVILLES at the White Bear (“The best production of these sketches I’ve ever seen” Michael Frayn) Mercurius returns to the venue with controversial 1990s play CANDLESTICKS by Deborah Freeman from 27th September to 15th October 2022.

To date there have been 16 sell-out, five star reviewed productions, including 3 transfers. These productions have received 8 OffWestEnd (Offie) nominations, been chosen as one of LondonTheatre1's top ten productions of 2015, one of Mind the Blog's top ten productions of 2016 and been Editor's Choice on several occasions.
