Our Project  

We are fundraising to take our production 'Bullarena' to Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year.

Who We Are

We are a diverse theatre company made up of actors coming together from all over the globe; Malaysia, Finland, Alaska, England and Scotland. We met at East 15 Acting School back in September 2017, formed a company in March 2018 and performed our first production of "Bullarena" the following May.

Our Story

Our different backgrounds (both personal and professional) helped us to create the story of "Bullarena." We would love to take this production to Edinburgh Fringe to reach a wider audience and spread a powerful message that is becoming more relevant. More than anything, Rough Stock Productions is here to entertain!


Inspired by a true story, Bullarena is a tale of identity and how we choose to follow the truth behind ours. In the masculine charged arena of bull riding, a sport where women are forbidden from competing, Cassidy has had enough. Never one for conforming to what society expects, Cassidy decides to challenge the perception of femininity and attempts to compete as an equal.

Sometimes simply being told you can't, is enough to make you face your fears and prove that you can.
