A vibrant production company based in South West London


Who are Wild Duck

Wild Duck Theatre is an independent production company, free to set its own ambitions and one which has produced a number of award-winning stage productions in and around South West London.

It was created in 2015 to showcase the best of work, mixing amateur and professional talents in all departments, and is a “not for profit” organisation.  All income from ticket sales is ploughed back into our future productions.

Wild Duck recently won the NODA award for best London drama of 2019 with its in the round production of 

King Charles III by Mike Bartlett directed by Susan Conte, Artistic Director of Wild Duck.

What work do we produce 

What are our ambitions 

Our selection of plays has, so far, focused on contemporary issues with a range of styles and includes The Distance by Deborah BrucePicnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay adapted by Tom Wright, Black Mountain by Brad Birch

and Things I know to be True by Andrew Bovell.  

These were incredibly good reads as plays, and asked searching questions whilst being good theatre.

In a normal year, we hope to produce at least two plays and always warmly welcome enquiries from actors, technicians, composers and playwrights about working on future showcases.

What's New

Short Plays for Short Journeys

Our brand new podcast drama series 

Launched December 2020

We recently formed Wild Duck Productions to work with emerging writers and create podcasts of short plays: 

Short Plays for Short Journeys. 

Season 1 podcast launched in December 2020 and Season 2 is due in early spring 2021.  These original new voices, in plays of up to four or five actors, tackle the modern world one play at a time in a range of topics and styles - with lots of gusto and lots of humour.  

Dip in and see what you like! Short Plays for Short Journeys.  

We would love to hear from writers, directors and actors looking to showcase and be considered for Season 3 and future seasons. We are also looking to collaborate with creative sound designers for Season 2 and beyond.


Writers may submit one piece running max 30mins but ideally around 10/15 mins.

Any arresting style but not about the lockdown.
