OVO is an award winning theatre company with an outstanding reputation

for innovative, imaginative and inspiring theatre

We produce a year round repertory programme at the Maltings Arts Theatre, our home in St Albans in the south of England.

We also appear regularly at other theatres both locally and nationally and have, in recent years, toured our productions to London, Stratford upon Avon and Edinburgh, and presented our work at spectacular open air venues including the Minack Theatre in Cornwall and the Roman Theatre of Verulamium.
