Gideon Reeling

About us

We make theatre, put on parties, design games, provide performers, actors, music, designers, directors & producers, create brand experiences & stunts, design & build sets, design & hire out costumes, provide educational & corporate training experiences, provide theatrical & educational consultants, and write scripts…

Gideon Reeling make truly interactive, site-specific theatrical experiences in which audience participation and a sense of inclusive playfulness are paramount.

The company was founded in 2006 by Kate Hargreaves, Felix Barrett and Colin Nightingale.

Our philosophy

Home grown

Making theatre for ourselves gives us the opportunity to create far deeper experiences than is normally possible. Our home grown productions often live on in their parallel universes, evolving and reappearing in different forms, sometimes spanning centuries. We love to create worlds with compelling stories; culturally relevant, whether set in a modern day Women’s meeting or a Medieval village in the woods. At times dark, poignant, uplifting, and emotional, but most of all, fun.

The scope of our commercial work is broad and varied, no two jobs are the same. Our approach centres around client collaboration to help develop truly bespoke experiences, drawing on the creativity expressed in our home grown productions. We believe immersive theatre works best for brands when delivered with the balance of purpose and sensitivity the audience demands. We don’t do promo, we do engaging immersive theatre.

We believe strongly in the value of learning through play. We encourage active participation, confidence building and creativity to foster a positive environment where skills and information can be acquired with ease and by stealth. We have a wealth of experience in delivering inclusive educational experiences to audiences of all ages. Attention to detail and thorough research are cornerstones of our approach and enable us to engage, inform and entertain with authenticity.

We believe amazing things can come from collaboration and are always looking to establish new relationships that can foster original pioneering work. Since inception Gideon Reeling has partnered with numerous organisations to create experiences that challenge, entertain, educate and enlighten. This, in turn, serves as vital inspiration for the work we do for ourselves and our clients and reminds us that there’s always more to explore.
