Hi, I’m Mona, the founder & artistic director of MO&NA Theatre Company.

I like long walks, crunchy snacks and being called ‘little sausage’. I don’t have many theatre credits due to my lack of opposable thumbs, which makes turning script pages very difficult, but I have a lot of spirit and-

- huh?

- oh…

- sorry, I’ve been caught by my owner setting up a local theatre company again… sorry… must dash…

MO&NA (pronounced mona) Theatre Company C.I.C is a Bedford-based theatre company (and registered community interest company) that aims to bring new writing, new talent & new ideas to the stage. We champion kindness, creativity and a ‘have-a-go-’ spirit, whilst striving for high quality art that engages and inspires audiences.


Our journey began in 2023, when we decided that our less-than-creative day jobs weren’t enough to keep our artistic juices flowing. We want to provide spaces for likeminded individuals to share their talents, try new things and be a part of something special outside the hustle-and-bustle of daily life.


In short, we want to create spaces for modern, original performances and platform new, emerging artists.
