WHO WE ARE
Undone Theatre is a London-based theatre company focussing on experimenting with different forms of storytelling and undoing classical narratives.
Whether it is an entirely new piece or a complete rewrite of a classical text, we create relevant new work that questions and challenges traditional forms of storytelling.
We are interested in showcasing queer perspectives, non-linear narratives and stories that voice multiple viewpoints.
Gabriele Uboldi (he/they) is an award-winning and Arts Council England funded director, playwright, dramaturg and producer based in London. They are a migrant artist with a focus on formal experimentation, mediatised theatre and queer performance. They are currently training at RADA and Birkbeck.
With a focus on re-working classical texts, Uboldi has written and directed bold adaptations of Sophocles' Oedipus Rex (2020) and Euripides' Bacchae (2017; Edinburgh Fringe 2018). His pieces, such as Death in the Quad (2018), are often immersive, site-specific and inclusive of live music, dance and physical theatre. Uboldi's directorial style is heavily influenced by his background in Social Anthropology as well as his interests in performance theory, performance in cross-cultural contexts, queer performance and relational aesthetics.

Joey Jepps (he/him) is a director and writer originally from Hong Kong. He is currently studying on the MA Text and Performance course at RADA and Birkbeck.
Focussing on identity politics, Joey is interested in how entertaining, visually striking theatre can disguise important, thought-provoking questions.

His critically-acclaimed work has been performed across the country, praised as ‘laugh out loud funny, heart-breaking and incredibly human’ (Lady Parts Review) and ‘one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a theatre’ (Yusuf Niazi).
