ABOUT

The Young Quill started as a London-based theatre production company founded by graduates of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in February 2017. Our team are passionate about staging new theatre productions and live performances by collaborating with emerging playwrights and actors. Our aim is to actively support, encourage and nurture fresh talent and help artists enter the theatre industry with ease. Since 2018 our creative team has expanded thanks to the involvement of several new collaborators. 

We are always open to new proposals. Our multi-disciplined team provides a platform - including workshops led by wide ranging performance professionals and educators - for every part of the performance process and working practices, from concept through to closing night. We want to make ideas become reality and to create engaging audience experiences.


'In a world that hopes without convincing that

there is hope, we still believe in a world full of hope.    

Like all dreamers, we only need a stage to make a truth, true.'
