FORRESTER & FLETCHER

Kitchen sink in the Hadron Collider

About: Welcome

A WRITING DUO
FOR STAGE & SCREEN

We are Forrester & Fletcher, a writing duo based in Birmingham and Manchester.

Each and every word of our work is co-written.

We create skewed reflections of reality; an off-kilter take on state-of-the-nation satire. We describe it as: ‘Kitchen sink in the Hadron Collider’.

Hilarious but harrowing, our work challenges audiences to consider the absurd consequences of contemporary British culture.

We began writing together after discovering a shared love of Bulgakov, Ballard and B2B trade publications.

To date, our stage plays have been produced in London, Coventry, Birmingham and Stratford.


Our work has been shortlisted for several industry awards and recently reached the top 1% of BBC Writersroom's 'Script Room Drama' 2021.

We are currently working on our third full length play, which explores the endgame of data-driven parenting.
