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

Joseph Nixon – Foundry Group founder member

We wish every success to the cast and crew of The Shark is Broken, currently running at the Ambassadors Theatre.

Foundry Group founder member Joseph Nixon co-wrote the play with our old colleague, Ian Shaw, who appeared in our recent revival of ‘Moonlight over India’ and was a stalwart of Mitchell and Nixon plays over the years.

Joseph is currently developing more shows for the Foundry Group with fellow founder Brian Mitchell.

Details to follow soon.

Available from Jan 2022

Following a sell-out mini-tour in summer, our divine new musical comedy Lord God, by best-selling author Philip Reeve (‘Mortal Engines’) and playwright and composer Brian Mitchell (‘Those Magnificent Men’), writers of acclaimed musical The Ministry of Biscuits, comes to Canterbury Festival and plays six nights at Brighton’s Lantern Theatre in November.

The cast includes comedian Joanna Neary (BBC2’s ‘Ideal’). Dates for spring 2022 to be announced.

David Mounfield 1970-2020

We were deeply saddened by the death of dearly-loved actor, writer, comedian and Foundry Group founder-member David Mounfield. He passed away on 14th March 2020, aged 50, from cancer. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his wife, Lynn, son, Eddie, and all who loved him. He is – and will ever be – very greatly missed.
