Natural Nylon Entertainment (NN), a British talent based Film Company, and Ambassador Theatre Group(ATG), a theatre owning and producing company in the West End and regions have announced the formation of a joint venture company, Natural Nylon Theatre Company Limited, and a development deal with the Young Vic Theatre Company.
It has been formed to produce a range of drama, comedy and mid-scale musicals on the British stage. It will be commissioning work by new writers, as well as producing the revivals of classics for the audiences of today.
The Natural Nylon Theatre Company Board consists of JUDE LAW, EWAN McGREGOR, SADIE FROST, JONNY LEE MILLER, SEAN PERTWEE, BRAD ADAMS, TONY MILLER, DAMON BRYANT and KEVIN LOADER for NN, and HOWARD PANTER and RUPERT GAVIN for ATG.
The company announced that several theatre projects will be staged in collaboration with the Young Vic Theatre Company with a view to transferring into the West End. Where possible, several of Natural Nylon's projects will be developed with the express intention of evolving from stage to film production.
Several of Natural Nylon Theatre's productions will feature Natural Nylon founding members, but will also draw on other high calibre talent in the UK.
The first projects include a new production of De Faustus, directed by David Lan, a new adaptation of Chekhov's Three Sisters, to be written by Christopher Hampton and directed by Sean Matthias, and a new production of The Collector (co-produced with Centreline), adapted by Mark Healy from the novel by John Fowles, directed by Mark Clements.
