About Conspirators Kitchen
   
   

Conspirators' Kitchen is a new writing company.  We are keen to explore plays that challenge conventional or received wisdom.

The ethos of the company rests on the notion that theatre should be a simple process of telling a story dramatically.  Complications to such a process are merely attempts by bad practitioners to place theatre into the realms of exclusivity.

We look for bold and daring performers to work with, performers that share our ethos of keeping things simple.  We welcome artists from all backgrounds to join the Conspirators' fold.

The company was founded in 2002 by writer/producer Nirjay Mahindru. Our 1st production was The Bottle which performed at the Brady Arts Centre and Watermans Arts Centre in 2004.

Our 2nd production was the critically acclaimed The Hot Zone in 2005.  The play peformed at the Brady Arts Centre, Lyric Theatre Hammersmith and Warehouse Theatre Croydon.  At the Lyric it had box office figures of 100% and critically, it brought in 68% of people that had never previously had an engagement with theatre before.  It was Time Out Critics Choice number 1 show for the complete duration of its run.  For the company this was affirmation from the paying public that what they wish to see are good stories well told that do not insult their intelligence.

The Hot Zone was remounted in 2007 as part of BAC's Time Out Critics Choice Season and once again, was a box office hit with nearly 100% box office figures.
