Meet The Company!

Hello, we are Flip A Coin Theatre, a collective of 2020 BA Acting graduates from East 15 Acting School, creating work that challenges the norms. Through our work, we hope to focus on the stories that are often suppressed and hidden, shining a light on the every day struggles we're never usually aware of. FACT was founded in 2020 when we debuted "Masterdating' in our final year of drama school. 

The journey so far...

'Masterdating' was first written and devised in early 2020 as part of the BA Acting 'Ensembles' project. Without a director, a group of us actors were put together and told to write something. After a week or so of struggle and many ideas thrown in the bin, we eventually came up with 'Masterdating'. After a week of rehearsal and a single performance, we knew that we wanted to develop it further, and what better time time to develop a play than in the midst of a pandemic!

Through countless video calls and meetings, we created Flip A Coin Theatre, began writing once again and put together the script we have now, hoping to showcase it to the next lucky audience. 

Where will the money go?

  • £500 pays for the rehearsal space as well as tech. 
  • £250 pays for 2 nights at Camden's Etcetera Theatre,  including tech hire.
