Bio:

Vintage Star is a new, award winning, all female theatre company set up in April 2011.

The company was formed by Artistic Director, Ann Akin and Director Catherine Ashton when they decided that they wanted to take their careers into their own hands and provide their own opportunities!

Our aim is to produce and perform powerful new writing for both stage and screen. We combine physical theatre, music, voice and have used sign language to create inspiring and thought provoking performances.

Our debut, double award winning, piece by Artistic Director, Ann Akin, was 'Conversations With Love'. An experimental, emotional piece using more than one art form. It incorporated music, movement and sign language as well as text.

'Conversations With Love' went from strength to strength. Starting it's debut performance at The Lost Theatre's One Act Festival in May 2011, it then went on to have sell out performances and five star reviews at both The Riverside Studios and Soho Theatre. It also won Best Theatre Production at the BEFFTA Awards 2011. Ann also won Best Writer for the show.
