Innovate and support
New Company aims to produce innovative work, involving new writers, designers and directors. The creative team on each project is mentored by well established professionals. Mentors include playwrights and directors, Alan Ayckbourn, Peter Gill, West End producers Peter Wilson and Thelma Holt, stage designers Bob Crowley and Michael Vale and lighting designers Paule Constable and Simon Corder.
New Company aims to develop its mentoring approach by involving children and young people from diverse communities. New Company has worked with ‘A-Space’, a Hackney-based, educational and support centre, to run outreach workshops within this vibrant, vividly multi-cultural but economically deprived community. We have also run workshops on bullying awareness and remedies in Camden and Westminster. Check out our current production, Between the Lines, a play inspired by First World War poetry.
