- About Wolves Theatre Company -
The company was founded in April 2016 by Ami Sayers and Sadie Clark based on a desire to see more female characters on stage and to tell the stories of women who did not conform to traditional gender roles or expectations, but who achieved or experienced amazing, fascinating things and deserve to have their tales told.
We trained together with Fourth Monkey Theatre Company and between us have experience in writing, directing, devising and performing.
Ami is an actress, writer and director. She trained at Drama Studio London and with Fourth Monkey Theatre Company. She is now a creative associate for Fourth Monkey and is currently writing and directing Sodom for their forthcoming Edinburgh Fringe season. Other writing and directing credits include Love and Be Silent (rehearsed reading at the Etcetera Theatre London) and Little Red Cap (writer and assistant director, Edinburgh Fringe 2015). Her professional acting credits include Elephant Man (national tour), Juliet in Romeo and Juliet (Jermyn Street Theatre), Miranda in The Tempest and Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Middle Temple Hall) and Jon Fosse's Visits (Theatre Delicatessen). She has worked with director Simon Usher in rehearsed readings at both the Royal Court Theatre and the Norwegian Embassy.
After completing a degree in Natural Science at the University of East Anglia Sadie decided a career in acting would be far more stable and went on to train in rep with Fourth Monkey Theatre Company. Her professional acting credits include Olivia in The Last Crusade (Tristan Bates Theatre), Cara in The Appointment (Women Redressed, Above the Arts Theatre), Dorsia in The Ice Man (Jacksons Lane Theatre) and The Queen of Hearts in the sell out run of Alice (Edinburgh Fringe 2014). Sadie will be performing a self-written piece, 'One Knee', in July as part of Press Play Theatre's 'Toy Box' at The Old Red Lion. Sadie also has experience producing (Plunge Theatre’s London run of Private View), and spent ten weeks last summer as a resident artist at Theatre Delicatessen learning the practicalities of setting up and running a theatre company.
