Jamie Lloyd Productions (JLP) is a joint initiative between ATG and director Jamie Lloyd, established with the mission of creating bespoke pieces of theatrical work for London, the UK regions, North America, Australia and other territories.
JLP burst onto the scene in February 2013, taking over the iconic Trafalgar Studios on Whitehall with the universally acclaimed Trafalgar Transformed. This politically-charged, dynamic season launched with a revolutionary production of Macbeth set in a dystopian Scotland brutalised by war. The irrepressible James McAvoy starred and subsequently received his second Olivier Award nomination for Best Actor. The production also received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Revival.
Following Macbeth was Harold Pinter’s The Hothouse starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm. The eerily prophetic satire was set in a nameless state-run institution where the dextrous cast of seven brought the simultaneously hilarious and horrifying characters to life with chilling consequences.
The third production in the season was The Pride by Alexi Kaye Campbell. Four of Britain’s finest young actors performed in this pertinent piece about the changing attitudes of society to homosexuality. Hayley Atwell received an Olivier Nomination for Best Actress for her portrayal of Sylvia.
Jamie Lloyd’s previous theatre credits include, among others, Cyrano de Bergerac, Roundabout, American Airlines Theatre, Broadway; The Duchess of Malfi, Old Vic; She Stoops to Conquer, National Theatre; The Faith Machine and The Pride (Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement), Royal Court; Inadmissible Evidence, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Passion (Evening Standard Award for Best Musical) and Polar Bears all Donmar Warehouse; Piaf, Donmar/Vaudeville/Teatro Liceo, Buenos Aires/Nuevo Teatro Alcala, Madrid (Hugo Award for Best Director, Clarin Award for Best Musical Production and ADEET Award for Best Production); The Little Dog Laughed, Garrick Theatre; Three Days of Rain, Apollo Theatre; The Lover and The Collection, Comedy Theatre. Jamie was Associate Director of the Donmar Warehouse from 2008 to 2011.
In 2014 Jamie entered The Stage power list at number 20, the youngest director to break into the top 100 list since Sam Mendes in 1998.
