Kopfkino is the collaboration between Flora Marston and Nic McQuillan. We tell stories about what it means to be part of our generation, and the juxtapositions of living in a polarised society. Our work burrows down into the cracks between public and private; real and unreal. It is inherently autobiographical.
Our first show, The Bearpit, was developed through BAC and supported by The Arts Council. It previewed at Theatre Royal Plymouth in July 2017, before premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe. It was described as ‘like a firework going off in your face’ by Matt Trueman in his 4 star review for WhatsOnStage, ‘Compelling’ by The Stage, ‘a deeply atmospheric piece of theatre’ by Broadway Baby and ‘a stunning debut’ by the 730 Review. It then transferred to Theatre503, Camden People’s Theatre, and was part of Incoming Festival at the New Diorama Theatre and HOME in June 2018. .
Flora trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she was mentored by the late Adrian Howells. She was a Chichester Festival Theatre Young Playwright, and has been commissioned by The Campsite and Grace Gibson. She has also been supported by The Jerwood Foundation and Somewhereto_.
Nic trained at The Oxford School of Drama. As an actor he has performed at The Tobacco Factory, Soho Theatre and The Lion and Unicorn. As a writer his work has been performed at The Arts Theatre, The Wardrobe, The Rose, Brockley Jack and The Space.
