The YarnBards


Leisa Rea directed the hit production of John Dowie, Neil Innes and Tony Haase ’s play ‘Dogman’ at the 2004 Fringe, and subsequently at the Riverside Studios, London.

In the cast were Richard Vranch, Alys Torrance, Tom Price, Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Miranda Hart and Janice Phayre. The company received critical acclaim

(‘Bursting with energy’ - Three weeks. ‘*****’ - British Theatre Review.)

Leisa wanted to continue producing high-quality theatre for children, and return to performing as well as directing. Richard wanted to expand his 20-year comedy improvisation background into storytelling for family audiences.

The YarnBards work as a team to bring innovative, interactive theatre to adults and children alike.

Dramatic storytelling on demand. Funny, scary, silly – the audience decides.
