Maybe You Like It, Maybe You Don't
Maybe You Like It Productions creates collaborative, high-energy theatre that aims to entertain and engage audiences with accessible, comedic work. We’re interested in exploring how we frame narratives, and what difference our storytelling makes to the story we’re telling. We're a group of graduate theatre and multimedia creatives and technicians with over 100 productions' experience between them, both separately and together
At the Fringe
2020’s ‘Pleading Stupidity’ would have been the second consecutive Fringe festival for Producer/Director duo Jake and Caleb and ¾ of the cast. In 2019, after a sold out run of previews, ‘Redacted Arachnid’ attracted 5 star reviews and was enjoyed over its 17 performances by over 700 audience members, selling out by the tail-end of the run.
To exercise their creative muscles on a constant basis, they host the weekly Maybe You Like It Podcast, in which Jake, Caleb and guests take plays and films that have never been staged before or are unlikely to ever be staged again, and talk about how they’d stage them
Maybe you like it productions are a collective of theatre and multimedia creatives with a shared passion for fast paced, collaborative, high energy theatre. Our team has two constants at its core:
Caleb is a History and English student at Oxford University. Caleb was involved in theatre throughout his childhood, and was a member of Chichester Festival Youth Theatre, for whom he performed at the Chichester Festival 2014. Caleb is looking towards a career in directing and so has focused on this at University. He has directed three plays; Confusions, The Admirable Crichton (which he adapted) and Matricuslash (which he co-wrote), and he assistant directed Made in Dagenham at the Oxford Playhouse. He has also kept up his acting, performing in The Lonesome West and taking the lead role in A View from the Bridge. Caleb has never been to the Fringe before and he is very excited to be debuting with a play he has written and directed this year.
Jake is a Producer, Actor, Show Caller, Stage Manager, Writer, lighting designer, and social media manager. For film he is an Assistant Director, Sound Recordist, and editor. His online CV is currently under construction and will soon be available to view here;
