In the run up to our March performances of "Feel" and "Feel / More" we're taking the opportunity to introduce you to our fierce and fantastic group of new collaborators. First of our new tribe is the brilliant Fergus Church.

His recent writing credits include Like Matilda (November 2017 - Theatre503), A Bit Of Fun (October 2017 – The Hidden Theatre Company), Littleness (May 2017 – Theatre With Teeth) and The Forecast: A New Musical (June 2016 – T3 Festival). His monologue Tapestry was also longlisted for Heretic Theatre’s Heretic Voices and will be performed in February.
