About Finger in the Pie

Lizzie - Sweeney Todd

Dark Funny and Aesthetically Stunning – Critics Choice, Time Out.

Finger in the Pie are an award winning theatre company who create spectacularly fun, visually stunning, physical theatre. We delight in strong narratives, grotesque characters and heart felt emotion. Our shows have a wry, pitch-black humour. Death, decadence and debauchery are constant themes in our work.

Our narratives deal with big truths, large underlying human states and universal characters. Our deliciously dark and endlessly inventive theatre will keep you on the edge of your seat and laughing out loud.

The company works from a heritage of Commedia as channeled through the Lecoq training. Our production of ‘Waiting for Stanley’ was ranked in the top 10 best reviewed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe 2012. Finger in the Pie were short-listed for a ‘Total Theatre Award: Best Emerging Company’ at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They were awarded the Fringe Report award for ‘Best Artistic Director 2012’.
