Now You Know is a small but mighty production company challenging the perceptions of theatre, characters and the issues that it was created to fight for. We strive to create theatre that highlights issues & injustices in our world whilst creating exciting and vibrant theatre. We strongly believe in giving new writing a place in the current business and continue to create opportunities for other companies and writers to express themselves through us with scratch nights and playwriting events in conjunction with The Hope Theatre, Islington
What We Believe
- That theatre is essential to our society
- That theatre should challenge and oppose the norm, it should stand up and raise its voice as loud as it can for those who cant.
- That each project is different and we will never treat two plays the same
- That progress, innovation & new life are what builds the future, no re-runs here!
- That there is an imbalance of equality within this industry, in both gender & race, we will strive to do our bit in fighting this injustice.
