Small Scale on a Big Scale
Founded in 1972, Mikron is the UK’s most prolific theatre company. In its 2015 season it will perform at 150 venues!
Anywhere for Everyone by Canal, River and Road
The company tours on its narrowboat, Tyseley, and by road, to every conceivable type of venue, reaching audiences that other companies cannot. Mikron tells stories of uniquely British things – In its 2015 season the company is celebrating the centenary of the Women’s Institute and also serving up its unique take on the nation’s favourite take away – Fish and Chips!

“Gut-bustingly Funny” Huddersfield Examiner
“The most hilarious, heartwarming, honest, insightful and engaging play” Janneke Geene, WI member
Bunnington WI is a bit down-at-heel. Dwindling membership means they can barely afford the hall, let alone a decent speaker. So when a PR guru becomes a member, the women are glad of new blood. The milk of WI kindness begins to sour when she re-brands them the Bunnington Bunnies. They’re hopping. With stakes higher than a five tiered cake stand, a battle ensues for the very soul of Bunnington, perhaps the WI itself! On the threshold of one century into the next, this tale of hobbyists and lobbyists asks how much we should know our past or how much we should let go of it.
Above all else, like the WI itself, Raising Agents is a story of friendship.
