About us

Untold stories, unexpected topics, chaos, laughs, absurdity, the political and the personal – we write about anything and everything.

As a female-led company, we are proudly feminist in our approach. Our stories often feature women in the leading role, but our work is for everyone to enjoy. We believe in equality and work with other writers, producers and directors to bring our projects together, whatever your gender identity.

But what about us?

Megan and Stevie met back in 2014 on the MA Screenwriting course at London College of Communication, and it’s been all go since then – including filling out the long-winded forms for Companies House…

Frost Fever Flood

Full-length play

Three intertwining stories set on the River Thames.

2014: a virtual reality game leads its players to their deaths, but it becomes clear that a man clinging to the edge of a bridge isn’t a player, he’s the game’s creator. Does he deserve to be saved?

2114: two scientists are desperately trying to save a matriarchal whale when it swallows them whole. Will they sacrifice its life when their own chance of survival is slim?

Life Among Gangsters

Full-length play

White wine, Maltesers, betrayal, drug dealing, attempted murder… just your average night in with the girls.

A quiet suburban existence is seemingly shattered when Caroline’s husband is arrested for drug dealing. That evening, her three best friends gather at her house to offer comfort and support, but do they know her as well as they think?

 

Panel 3

Get involved

We actively partner with businesses who want to align their brand with female-led film and theatre from up-and-coming writers, directors and producers. We offer supporters the chance to discover and support new talent and be involved in exciting new projects.

Sponsorship, advertising opportunities, events, ticket discounts, leafletting opportunities – each package is tailored to suit our generous corporate and private supporters who do so much to help us make projects a reality.

We’re always happy to make contact with theatres, event spaces, producers, directors, actors, and everyone who wants to have a chat about the work they do, and the work we do. We love coffee (we probably love beer a little bit more, but we do love coffee). So email us and let’s arrange a time to talk. We are nice. Promise.
