What Was That? Productions

What Was That? Productions was founded by Alan Mehdizadeh in 2004 as a means of supporting young talent and providing a 'home' for emerging artistes and new writing.


Having presented our first production of 'WHOA' in 2005, the company has gone on to produce several showcases, short films, full scale musicals and stage plays around the UK.


In May 2010 - we were invited by the Open Platform Scheme to perform 'The Kebab Man Cometh' - written and directed by Alan Mehdizadeh at The Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

The production was received by a sell out audience and attained outstanding reviews. In addition, we were fortunate to have used a cast of seven ex-Aberystwyth Drama graduates who are all now professional actors.


Most recently we returned to Aberystwyth Arts Centre with a sell out production of Alan Ayckbourn's 'Table Manners' - Directed by Adam Lacey. (featuring Alan Mehdizadeh, Steven Humpherson, Michael Anders, Elaine Hartley, Laura Bacon and Sarah Annakin).


We pride ourself on producing exciting Stage Plays and Musicals - both old and new - and Short Films. Using a selection of young, talented individuals we have been fortunate to attain an outstanding reputation to date through the standard of our work.
