Coming up in 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! Our brand new 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 – took to the skies at Leicester Comedy Festival prior to a spring tour (more dates tba) with full houses, appreciative audiences and a glowing review. Details here.

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 and returns for a run at Rialto Theatre, Brighton, in autumn.

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 – and our acclaimed tribute to the music of Freddie Phillips, ‘Trumpton Comes Alive!’


Both shows are stock pieces generally available for booking throughout 2014 and 2015.

There are great shows from renowned comedian Joanna Neary and acclaimed writer/performer Emma Kilbey.
