About Us

Telling great stories in collaboration with trusted partners.

Anthology Theatre began its life in 2002 when Bob Benton started supporting and investing in productions. Since then, we have grown into a full-scale production company, producing and managing its own work under Managing Director & Executive Producer, Lil Lambley.
