OVO is an award winning theatre company with an outstanding reputation for innovative, imaginative and inspiring theatre.
The company was founded in 2002 by Adam Nichols and Simon Nicholas. Our name comes from the latin ‘ab ovo’ meaning ‘from the beginning’.
We produce around half a dozen productions each year at the Maltings Arts Theatre, which we run on behalf of St Albans City and District Council. 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 various open air venues including the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. The Merry Wives of Windsor in the summer of 2015 marked our 50th production
OVO is a registered charity number 1159409. The company is governed by a board of trustees. You can find out more about our board by clicking on their pictures above.
