"An innovator in children's theatre" The Guardian

Catherine Wheels is also Scotland’s most well-travelled theatre company touring nationally and internationally taking productions to theatres, festivals and schools in communities and cities across Scotland, to London’s Southbank and Barbican, and across the globe from Europe to New York, Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, Macau, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.

Such has been the acclaim for Catherine Wheels’ shows, that many of the company’s productions have stayed in repertoire, including Martha, which has performed to audiences of over 100,000 across four continents; Lifeboat, the first Scottish theatre production to appear at the Sydney Opera House and White, the company’s most well-travelled production which has been performed over 1700 times to children and their families.
