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.
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.
