A Girl Called Stephen Theatre (AGCS) is a theatre company, based in Reading, established to promote, present and produce work written by/for/with womxn and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Co-founders Annie Kershaw and Katie Walsh met at The University of Birmingham and decided to form the company after taking a drag cabaret style production of Twelfth Night to Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.

Since, AGCS’ work has included gig theatre, verbatim theatre, open mic events and street theatre.

Their first major production was a double bill of plays co-produced with Reading Rep in July 2019: Safe by Alexis Gregory and Locker Room Talk by Gary McNair.
