Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Season Campaign

April 17, 2015


These are exciting times, for West End theatre and for us at SWD.

With the announcement that the newly-formed Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company will take over the Garrick Theatre from October for an unmissable year of exceptional productions. We are thrilled to be working with Ken and the producers, Fiery Angel, on every aspect of this campaign – from creating the company’s identity and website, to art directing photo-shoots and designing their print and digital marketing.

Ken will be joined by a company of remarkable actors, led by Rob Brydon, Judi Dench, Lily James and Richard Madden, who will feature in a season of Plays at the Garrick that will include titles such as A Winter’s Tale, The Entertainer and Romeo & Juliet.

SWD’s relationship with Ken goes back to his Renaissance Theatre Company in the late 1980s when our very own Shaun Webb was a fresh-faced graduate of the Chelsea School of Art. After two years cutting his graphic design teeth at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, he worked with the Renaissance from the back room of a Camberwell flat, (the bathroom doubled as a dark room).

We’ve delved into our archive and found evidence from those early days:

SWD also has a long-established relationship with Fiery Angel having worked with Edward and Marilyn on a number of their recent productions including The Ladykillers and the award-winning 39 Steps.

Keep an eye out for more updates as this project unfolds!
