ABOUT


From first stages to big stages. 

We produce collaborative new work by assembling an artistic team from the very beginning, discussing projects at every stage of development and providing workshopping opportunities throughout the journey from page to stage.

The company formed in 2013 with its debut production of Operation Crucible (co-produced by Curran McKay) directed by Bryony Shanahan and performed in the new writing slot at the Finborough Theatre, the play subsequently went on a UK tour, ran for three sell-out weeks at the Crucible Theatre and was a New York Times critics pick and a sell-out show at the Brits Off Broadway festival in May 2018 (co-produced by Stephen McGill Productions). Our second production 31 Hours was directed by Abigail Graham and premiered at the Bunker Theatre in London (produced by W14 Productions). The play tackled mental health issues in young men, it was a Daily Telegraph critics choice and it also received a spate of five star notices. 

In March 2017 we started a project for recent unrepresented graduates from UK drama schools called (RE)PRESENTED which offered free rehearsal practice and feedback to all applicants and the opportunity to develop a new play as a showcase for five actors to restart their careers. The first play from this process called Comet premiered in February 2018 at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. All five of the actors received representation following the process.

We aim to tell stories from a perspective not often seen and put characters on stage who often don't get the chance to be visible.
