Reverend Productions

Reverend Productions is a company dedicated to creating and producing new work for the theatre. Born of a series of collaborations by actors who trained together at East 15 School of Acting, the company works with a wide range of artists to devise and write new plays.

In September and October 2016, the Oxford-based company will present a touring bill of two original one-act dramas. Taking place in the same apartment block, the two distinct stories feature the same cast and are played back-to-back, in either order, and separated by an interval.

JEKYLL & HYDE, is the company's new take on a well-known title, while NERVE is a contemporary response to the kitchen-sink social dramas of the 1950s and 1960s. Award winning playwright Charlie Howitt has created a world in which the two stories overlap both thematically and stylistically, such that the experience of seeing one illuminates the subtext and subtleties of the other.

JEKYLL & HYDE: Brilliant surgeon Ellie Jekyll is feeling the strain of caring for her terminally ill brother, Simon. Luckily, a newfound friendship with her neighbour, Abigail Hyde, proves to be just what doctor ordered. However, when a young girl dies unexpectedly during surgery, Jekyll’s honourable name is tarnished, and her world begins to unravel around her.

Inspired by the Gothic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, this fast paced drama blurs the lines between good and evil, insane imaginings and real life monsters.

NERVE: Inspired by his bold, decisive approach to life, Sam edges closer to her magnetic new housemate, Danny. But after a violent dispute with their neighbour she is left struggling to locate her moral centre. Her best friend, Tess, is overwhelmed by anxiety as she approaches the twenty-fourth week of her pregnancy; and local policeman Greg is too lost trying to rekindle his relationship with his ex-wife to notice that their neighbour from Flat B is missing. How can we ever know what is right? What if doing the right thing comes at the expense of those we love? Nerve is a “gripping play about morality that doesn’t moralise. It lets [the audience] do the brainwork” (Park Theatre Script Accelerator).

The company joins Greenwich Theatre as Supported Artists in 2016.
