Light the Fuse Theatre Company was formed in 2014 by Co-Founders Gemma Fairlie (RSC, Royal Court, New Vic, Orange Tree) and Neil Bettles (Frantic Assembly, National Theatre, NTS). Our work aims to charge everyday spaces with explosive visual and physical elements to surprise and captivate audiences of all ages. We strive to make audiences reconsider their surroundings and find the fun in the familiar.

Our work is collaborative, witty and daring, fusing a strong artistic narrative with spectacle and humour.


Our first show, Full Stop, was commissioned by Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, Latitude, Watford Palace and Lyric Hammersmith and toured nationally in 2014 and 2015 entertaining over 12,000 people! Our new show, Playground Victories, will be hitting the road in summer 2017 intending to dazzle and delight even more.
