A BRIEF HISTORY

Anthroplay was co-founded in 2019 by artists Rosie Sharp & Anna McKelvie (previously known as Ginger & Blonde Theatre). Their journey began when the two met in drama school and discussed 'the purpose of being a woman'. This was the catalyst that shaped their company and projects today.
