Goodmann Productions

Artistic Director – Petina Hapgood

Goodmann Productions was originally set up in 2000, by two experienced, TV and Theatre actors - Petina Hapgood and Derek Mannway, to bring exciting new writing to wider audiences.  Successful touring productions included – Poetic Justice, Dickens to the Dome, Bertie the Bug, Jabber and an updated version of Cinderella.

After a short break and with a new company format. Goodmann decided to concentrate on iconic plays that could still excite a current audience, by looking at how they are still relevant today. However they are still open to using new writers, if the right project presents itself. Writers are encouraged to contact the company if they would like a new play produced.
