We are a new theatre company founded by queer women, designed to break the mould - both on stage and in the wings.
Fed up of unambitious shows, Dolls in Amber was created to push the boundaries of traditional theatre and help diversify the voices being heard.
Alternative names included Screaming Harpies and the Anti-rich-straight-men Brigade but we were advised these might be too "caustic" - thus, Dolls in Amber was born.
