MADE AT MOUNTVIEW

Over the past few years at Mountview, we have strengthened our commitment to new writing, dedicating time for students to work with writers on shows from their conception, or to unearth previously unseen material from some of the UK's finest writers. Lockhart, Grace and White Pig are all forthcoming examples of such work. It is always a huge thrill to see these shows appear on the professional stage and over the past year this has happened a number of times. 

Analogue's Sleepless, which Mountview developed in spring 2014, recently enjoyed a full professional run at Shoreditch Town Hall. Philip Ridley's Karagula, performed by Mountview in spring 2015, spent a month at a secret location this summer in association with Soho Theatre. 

Elliot Davis and James Bourne's Out There, originally workshopped at Mountview three years ago, can now be seen at the Union Theatre, opening this week and running until 8 October. The cast includes Mountview graduates Imelda Warren-Green, Thea Jo Wolfe and Shane Gibb.

We are extremely proud to have been part of these shows, and look forward to being part of many more.
