The Foundry Group is a band of writers and performers committed to producing affordable, popular, intelligent touring shows with a broad appeal.
COMING UP…Gilbert (No Sullivan), our lively adaptation of tall tales and bonkers ballads by comic genius W. S. Gilbert (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame), has been very warmly welcomed and reviewed on a twenty-two date tour. Performed by Radio 4 regular David Mounfield and the Ornate Johnsons’ Brian Mitchell, the show, supported by Arts Council England, tours again in May and plays the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate as 6th August. Tour dates here.
Chocks away! Following two highly popular tours, there are still a few performances of 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. Tour details here.
As a sister project to this show, the Foundry Group, supported by The Lantern Theatre, is producing a double bill of Gilbert’s masterly and unfairly neglected short plays ‘Sweethearts’ and ‘The Hooligan’. This is a special event for Brighton Fringe and lasts only nine performances. Tickets here.
And in August, An Audience with Henry VIII plays Edinburgh Fringe. details tba.
We also have new shows coming up – see the ‘In Development’ section on the top right bar of this page.
