Autumn 2015

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

Chocks away! Following a highly popular spring tour, our acclaimed production of Mitchell & Nixon‘s hit play Those Magnificent Men – the nail-biting, side-splitting true story of Alcock and Brown and the first ever non-stop transatlantic flight – takes to the skies again this autumn. Details here.


An Audience with Henry VIII

Multi-award-winning actor Ross Gurney-Randall’s hilarious and exciting portrayal of England’s most notorious monarch was a sell-out hit with extra dates in Brighton Fringe and won standing ovations in Kansas City International Theatre Festival. It is generally available for booking from spring 2016.


We were greatly honoured when our tribute to the music of Freddie Phillips, ‘Trumpton Comes Alive!’ formed part of the inaugural season of the wonderful new open air theatre B.O.A.T. on June 21st in a Father’s Day special:

Our multiple prize-winning comedy-drama Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks finally hung up its wrestling boots (for the foreseeable future) following a sell-out farewell performance at Brighton’s brand new venue The Rialto Theatre. If you missed it, you can read all about it here and catch a little taster:

Our co-production with award-winning company Driftwood Productions of Mitchell & Nixon‘s zinging, swinging sixties comedy musical The Opinion Makers played the festival circuit last spring to full houses and rapturous reviews. It was
awarded a prestigious Argus Angel for artistic excellence in the Brighton Festival.

Eliza Skelton/Ernie

And Eliza Skelton and Friends, our event with renowned musicians and Foundry Group members Eliza Skelton and Emma Kilbey that played the World Famous Spiegeltent in May, was also a Fringe sell-out and was nominated for Best Music Event in the Brighton Festival Awards.

We also have a stable of wonderful stock shows, including ‘Seven Studies in Salesmanship’ – our award-winning sequence of short comic plays supported by Arts Council England, Derby Theatre and Create Theatre. Go to ‘SHOWS’ on the toolbar for full details.
