Great Plays, Finely Produced

Troupe, run by Ashley Cook, aims to present the boldest new writing and the bravest rediscoveries. Troupe’s recent production of Rasheeda Speaking by Joel Drake Johnson starred Tanya Moodie and Elizabeth Berrington at Trafalgar Studios and was nominated for five Off West End Awards. Troupe returns to Southwark Playhouse in Autumn 2018 with The Sweet Science of Bruising by Joy Wilkinson after its critically acclaimed productions of Dear Brutus by J. M. Barrie, which starred Miles Richardson, and The Cardinal by James Shirley, which starred Stephen Boxer and Natalie Simpson for which she won the Ian Charleson Award. It was supported by an inaugural MGCfutures Bursary Award. Troupe’s previous rediscoveries at the Finborough Theatre – Rodney Ackland’s After October, Robert Bolt’s Flowering Cherry and R. C. Sherriff’s The White Carnation, which later transferred to Jermyn Street Theatre – have been nominated for a total of five Off West End Awards.
