Nic McQuillan is a playwright, actor and one half of Kopfkino Theatre with Flora Marston. Their first piece together, The Bearpit, was developed at Battersea Arts Centre. They went on to perform it at Theatre Royal Plymouth, the Edinburgh Fringe 2017, Theatre503 and Camden People’s Theatre. The Bearpit was described by Matt Trueman in his ★★★★ review as writing ‘like a firework going off in your face’, and by the 730 Review as ‘a stunning debut’.
★★★★ ‘brilliantly (and unusually) co-written … their text rattles off like a runaway train, then slams into plainspoken, heartfelt simplicity.’WhatsOnStage
★★★★ ‘a relentless interrogation of generational cynicism’ Broadway Baby
★★★★ ‘exciting and innovative’ 730 Review
‘Brilliant new writing responding to the world today’ Jake Orr
★★★ ’Sharp and cynical script … delicious vitriolic one liners’ The Scotsman
They are currently developing their second piece, The Grand Scheme of Things, as part of The Yard’s First Drafts. It receives its debut at Litmus Fest at the Pleasance Theatre, London, on the 27 & 28th September. Here’s a link: THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS.
Nic originally trained as an actor at The Oxford School of Drama. His work has been performed at Theatre Royal Plymouth, The Wardrobe Theatre and The Space. His play Ebb was described as ‘A very affecting monologue about the end of love, the power of imagination and the fragility of memory’ by StageTalk.
