Who we are and what we do!

The Sarah Siddons Fan Club is a promenade theatre performance company who make site-specific work based on the history of the site. Primarily we work in the Southampton region where we have been writing and performing our own idiosyncratic form of theatre since 1986. We take our name from the 18th century tragic actress, Sarah Siddons, famous for her ‘attitudes’ and a frequent visitor to Southampton.

“Sorry am I to say, I have often observed that I have performed worst when I most ardently wished to do better than ever.”
– Sarah Siddons

The Fan Club’s main productions are based on historical incidents and people who lived in the town of Southampton, but over the years we have created plays in Gaydon, Hamble-le-Rice, Netley, Romsey, Stoneham, among others.

“…I believe one half of the world is born for the convenience of the other half.”
– Sarah Siddons
