Creative Curve Theatre Company was set up in 2014. The first performance was Brandy at St John’s, Waterloo. In 2018 Creative Curve Theatre Company developed and performed The Blitz Herstory as part of the Waterloo heritage weekend. The Blitz Herstory is a theatrical piece based on memories of Waterloo and South London’s residents during World War II. The ethos of Creative Curve Theatre Company is the retelling of history from the women’s perspective.
