Inky Quill Productions


Inky Quill Productions

A company set up in 2009 to bridge what we saw as a gap between the casual theatre-goer and the definite non theatre-goer. We started off with comedy, but what's that?  We've thrown some horror into the mix?  Crikey.

Here's a review for Shudders 2012 in Blackwood last month. A huge thank you and well done to everyone who worked on the show.

Our current mini-touring comedy play The Devil's Jig is on tonight at Nos Da. Click here for the event page. Come along if you're interested in Inky Quill,  to see our fringe style performance. It's a  rough, rude romp about a highwayman desperate to get out of the game. Down in the basement bar of Nos Da, enjoy a pint and have a laugh. Hope to see you there.

Hi everybody. It's coming up to Halloween and "Shudders" rehearsals are going very well indeed. It's going to be an exciting variety of different horrow themes and styles, from the most intimate of monologues to expressionist physical theatre, blood letting (naturally) and atmospherics, we've got a great soundtrack too if you're into that sort of thing. Here's a new pic.

Come and see Shudders at Blackwood Miners' Institute on 31st October, tickets £6 (£5 concession).
