Tricolore Theatre Company

Tricolore Theatre Company, a non-profit venture, was founded in 2007 by actress Nadia Ostacchini. Its main aim is to promote international theatre, literature, and language, although as its name suggests, the primary emphasis is on Italian work, specialising in bilingual plays for children. Tricolore’s first Christmas show, ‘THE GINGERBREAD MAN/L’OMETTO DI PAN PEPATO’, in a new adaptation by Penny Culliford, toured London and Rome in 2008-2009. Amongst other bilingual poetry and music evenings, performances and children’s entertainment sessions, a new Bolivian play at The King’s Head theatre in 2010 was followed by an English / Italian commedia inspired play, ‘THE GOLDEN CHAIN/LA CATENA D’ORO’ at the Theatro Technis theatre in 2012.  Two historical re-enactments at Fishmonger’s Hall and Freemason’s Hall in 2014 followed as part of a series of events organized by The Mazzini Garibaldi Club in collaboration with the Italian Embassy, commemorating Giuseppe Garibaldi’s visit to London in 1864.  Their recent play SAFFRON HILL, written to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Arandora Star tragedy, played to a sell-out audience at The Pleasance Theatre in October 2015.  Tricolore are currently exploring sponsorship opportunities to stage a re-run of Saffron Hill as well as the premiere of a new bilingual English/Italian production for children aged 4-8 years in 2017.

They would like to thank The Mazzini Garibaldi Foundation for sponsoring GUERRA E PACE, The British Italian Society for their very kind donation and both ST PETERS ITALIAN CHURCH & CASA ITALIANA SAN VINCENZO PALLOTTI for hosting their event.
