We love new writing. Whether it's creating it ourselves, supporting and promoting the work of others or just finding out what's new, we're passionate about it. Below are some of the productions, showcases and companies we've worked with.
Ignite - Women in the Arts - Burn Bright Theatre
To coincide with International Women's Day, Burn Bright Theatre hosted a night of female talent from comedy to poetry to live music. Artistic Director Laura Kaye Thomson performed work from our most recent R&D as well as a re-imagined version of His Majesty's Men from Music Box musical Poppies.
Cue the Music - Cue Productions - Park Theatre
Cue Productions hosts a variety of different nights at the Park Theatre and we were delighted to be asked to join the line-up in their evening of new musical theatre: Cue the Music!
It was great to share the stage with fellow Stiles and Drewe finalist Darren Clarke and also fellow Made in LDN composer Dominic Powell.
Made in LDN - Interval Productions - Cockpit Theatre
Curated by Tori Allen-Martin of Interval Productions, Made in LDN was an ACE funded season of new Musical Theatre writing which premiered new works by London based writers. With Poppies in development for its second run in London, we showcased some of the new songs in the show as well as some which had featured in the first production at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Musical Theatre Tuesdays - Theatre Royal Stratford East
We were delighted to be asked by Theatre Royal Stratford East to produce an evening of the best new musical theatre the industry has to offer.
