Who are we?
Paul Coulter - Producer
White Stag Theatre was formed by independent Theatre producer and writer Paul Coulter. Paul has worked extensively across Film, television and theatre since 1998. A previous sister company White Stag productions won an MGAlba award for the short Gaelic film Hero in 2009. With White Stag Theatre Company Paul is getting back to basics and producing new Scottish drama for a live audience. "Simple, engaging theatre is what I aim to produce. An audience should be able to leave the theatre emotionally charged simply by what the actor has said to them without the need for too many props, visual aids, lightening and music. Our plays are set in Scotland, performed in Scotland and employ the rich local talent of our country, we do however want to showcase what Scotland has to offer to the rest of the world and we have been delighted to receive offers to take our work abroad for other nations to enjoy."
