The Young Quill started as a London-based theatre production company founded by graduates of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in January 2017. Our team are passionate about staging new theatre productions and interdisciplinary live performances by collaborating with emerging artists, 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. In 2019 The Young Quill moved to Athens and since then they have been mainly active there.
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.
Like all dreamers, we only need a stage to make a truth, true.'
