New Writing Theatre Company

COMPANY: Motormouse Productions started its work in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival - with 'Kiss my Honeymoon Lips', a comedy set in a 1970s hairdressers. Corporate work, revue shows and stand-up comedy followed. In recent times the company has taken a more dramatic shift, blending difficult subjects with humour. It is this that creates the Motormouse style. Karen Bartholomew, founder of the company, is thrilled the Arts Council, Unity Theatre Trust, Kent County Council and the Really Useful Group are supporting this year's R&D 'Giving up Marty' - a play in development about an unlikely adoption reunion.
