The Foundry Group is a band of writers and performers committed to producing affordable, popular, intelligent touring shows with a broad appeal.

We are deeply saddened by the death of dearly-loved actor, writer, comedian and Foundry Group founder-member David Mounfield. He passed away on 14th March, aged 50, from cancer. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his wife, Lynn, son, Eddie, and all who loved him. He will be – is – very greatly missed.

David Mounfield 1970-2020


New shows are in the pipeline for 2021, including the divine new musical comedy Lord God, by best-selling author Philip Reeve (‘Mortal Engines’) and playwright and composer (‘Those Magnificent Men’), the writers of acclaimed musical The Ministry of Biscuits and the sell out stage adaptation of Pugs of the Frozen North – both recent Foundry Group productions. More details tba.



Ingoldsby Legends
Ingoldsby Legends (generally available for booking autumn 2020)

Acclaimed writers Brian Mitchell and Joseph Nixon have adapted the best of the supernatural tales of Thomas Ingoldsby (aka Rev. Richard Harris Barham) into this hilarious show. Expect ghosts, demons, witches, smuggling, robbery and murder – all told in brilliantly witty, rumbustious verse. It previews at Rialto Theatre 15th December, 2019 and is generally available for booking from autumn 2020.


Whaddya Know – We’re in Love! – our ‘irresistible’ (FringeReview) new musical comedy by songwriter Jerry Rulf and playwright Brian Mitchell – continues in April 2020 following a glowing reception in 2019.

Those Magnificent Men

Our popular production of Mitchell & Nixon‘s hit play ‘Those Magnificent Men’, which tells the hilarious and gripping story of Alcock and Brown and the first ever non-stop transatlantic flight, continues with dates in late spring. Tour dates here.
