Co-Artistic Directors - Leah Gaffey, Izzy Dougill, Olivia Wilkes and Luke Thomas.
Associate Artists - James Byfield, Lauren Harbord, Ruth Tebby and Solomon Thomson.
Supported by - Theatre and Performance/Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship departments, Goldsmiths, University of London and Kickstarter.
Our debut was ‘Known’, a verbatim play about the small town community of Porthmadog, North Wales. It explored how that community reacted to and rebuilt after the murder of a young woman in 2010. 'Known' was taken to Brighton Fringe 2015, Catford Broadway, The Pleasance, CLF Art Café/Bussey Building, Bridge House Theatre at Warwick School and Theatr Clwyd Cymru. More info here →
Our second show was Mood Kill, which we have just presented at the Camden Fringe and The White Bear. It is a piece about male mental health, specifically focussing on depression and suicide. We collected material for about two years, showcasing the real stories and experiences of men who have survived suicide attempts, bereaved families and friends, and men who are opening up and confronting their mental health for the first time. It is a delicate, sensitive and, at times, confronting exploration of what life is like for those living with this on a daily basis. More info here →
We are currently developing a new verbatim show about about gender, gender identity and expression. We are aiming to make a show that celebrates all expressions of gender and interrogates the social stigma that surrounds unapologetic expressions of gender that do not conform to social 'norms'. We want to hear your stories, so if you have anything to say about gender, or would like us to follow your journey, please get in touch using the link below.
We are currently looking for people to talk to us and share their stories! More info here →
