Aegis Productions was founded in 2008 by Athena Stevens, an American writer, director and actor. Athena was born with athetoid cerebral palsy.
Aegis strives to stretch the boundaries of imagination and to equip others to do the same.
The ongoing web series Day of Small Things is produced by Aegis Productions, it examines the relativity of achievement through interviews with the great, the good and the everyman. Aegis Productions has produced two web series, Assistive Devices and Vote Z which seek to actively and accurately reflect the world in which we live, not just a world for the fittest or most physically able.
The company has produced three of Athena’s plays: The Amazing Vancetti Sisters (Tristan Bates Theatre) and Schism (Finborugh Theatre an Park Theatre), in which she also starred.
Aegis Productions portfolio is stridently diverse and its work is being recognised both in the UK and abroad.
