Chris Foxon

Producer/Dramaturg

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a freelance theatre producer and producer of the multi-award-winning Papatango Theatre Company. I have mounted shows at the Old Vic Theatre, Trafalgar Studios, Park Theatre, Oxford Playhouse, Arcola Theatre, Southwark Playhouse and Finborough Theatre, and transferred work internationally.

My work revolves around identifying and producing/publishing emerging, often debut and unrepresented, playwrights.

In producing new talent, I have a particular focus on dramaturgy and artist development, as well as casting, project management, marketing, press and fundraising.

I also supervise and tutor candidates on the MA and MFA Writing for Stage and Screen programmes at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.
