I’m blown away by what CPT has been doing these past few months. Feels like it’s totally blazing a trail, artistically & politically” – Chris Goode, theatre-maker
Camden People’s Theatre is a central London space dedicated year-round to supporting early-career artists – particularly those making work about issues that matter to people right now. Our mission is to refresh and strengthen the performance sector with a new generation of artists who bring a fresh perspective to contemporary concerns, create new artistic forms with which to address them; and to present their work to a new generation of audiences.
Brian Logan, Artistic Director
Brian has been artistic director of CPT since Sept 2011. Brian’s prior theatre work includes sixteen years as co-director (with Alex Murdoch and Neil Haigh) of the acclaimed touring theatre company Cartoon de Salvo, with whom he devised and performed in 11 major shows, including Meat & Two Veg (BAC and international tour), The Sunflower Plot, Hard Hearted Hannah and Other Stories (Lyric Hammersmith, Edinburgh Fringe and Kennedy Center, Washington DC), Made Up (Soho Theatre, 2012) and Pub Rock. Brian’s play David Hume’s Kilt was developed at the National Theatre of Scotland and semi-staged at the Traverse, Edinburgh in 2009; its follow-up The Keys to the Universe was also the runner-up for the Robert McLellan Award. In 2016, he toured with Will Adamsdale and Lloyd Hutchinson in Fuel Theatre’s The Joke. With CPT, Brian co-created and directed This Is Private Property (2016) and Fog Everywhere (2017).
