FallOut Theatre is committed to the drama of aftermath, the beauty of chance, and the overwhelming energy of conflict: we like to see What Falls Out.

Formed in 2007, FallOut Theatre was originally a collaboration between David Aula and Dr. Abigail Rokison. They met at the University of Cambridge where they were thrown together by a production of 4:48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane, which David directed. Abigail acted in the first two FallOut productions, After the End and The Cement Garden and directed its third, The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh - in which David played Tupolski. The company moved to London in 2009, Abigail remains in her position as Director of Studies for English and Drama in the Faculty of Education. She continues to support and tutor the work of young actors and directors and complements her acclaimed academic work (Shakespearean Verse Speaking: Text and Theatre Practice, Cambridge University Press) by continuing to produce high quality theatre.

The original purpose of the setting up of FallOut was to create a platform from which young actors and directors could launch themselves into the professional world. We are pleased to be realising that intention.

Note: David Aula is a stage name. David's surname by birth is Brown. Published reviews for his productions before 2010 will refer to him by his birth name
