Shark Theatre produces theatre created and curated by its Artistic Director Sara Shaarawi and Producer Mhari Robinson. Incorporated in 2017, it aims to create extraordinary theatrical experiences connecting audiences with exciting new work. Based in Edinburgh at the cultural and political heart of Scotland, Shark means East in Arabic.
We have founded Shark Theatre in order to create a vehicle for Sara’s work as a playwright and to place more stories from non-white artists in Scottish theatres.
Sara Shaarawi’s Niqabi Ninja will be Shark Theatre’s first production. Premiering in May 2019, it will be directed by Davey Anderson.
Shark Theatre is a Company Limited by Guarantee, registered in Scotland, SC577213.
