THE KEEPER'S DAUGHTER
GENRE STORYTELLING FOR YOUNG ADULT AUDIENCES
Led by Mark Finbow, the company works throughout East Anglia, and beyond, partnering with arts organisations to develop new pieces of theatre and film.
The company has worked in partnership with organisations including Eastern Angles, Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, The Garage, Creative Arts East, Norwich Arts Centre, Vivacity Key Theatre and The Seagull Theatre.
The Keeper’s Daughter was resident company at The Corn Hall from 2012 - 2017. The company offered regular arts opportunities for young people, produced a number of community shows and toured productions to rural venues.
The company now produces genre-specific new writing for studio theatre but continues to explore theatre in found spaces, including their annual production of A Christmas Carol at Biddy’s Tea Room.
The company was founded by Mark Finbow and Emma Martin and is currently based at The Nave, Norwich.
Mark trained as an actor at LAMDA, where he was awarded the Sir John Gielgud bursary. He works as a writer, Actor, Director and Producer in theatre and film.
As a writer, his first short film A Thousand Empty Glasses (Take Cover Films) was nominated for best UK short at Raindance, picked up for worldwide distribution and became a number one selling film on iTunes. His most recent short film Roadside Oddities (Trett Films/Keeper’s Daughter) has screened all over the world.
As a producer and director he has created over a dozen rural touring shows and developed a number of physical theatre productions for studio theatres.
Mark was recently selected for a BBC writersroom masterclass, chosen to participate in the Creative England/BFI/write2screen East of England Talent Module and selected for the Patatango Regional Playwriting course.
