LEE JAMES BROADWOOD
Having graduated from the University of Sussex with a joint honours degree in Drama and French, Lee James Broadwood makes a living as an interdisciplinary artist in live performance and creative media.
Working as a writer-director and dramaturg, Lee James’s previous works span TV and radio projects, classical and Shakespeare plays, original plays, documentary films, animations, contemporary performances, and movement work. He has staged performances in off-West End theatres, pub theatres, campus theatres and find locations and has worked on feature film projects in London and across the UK. As a dramaturg and theatre critic of six years, he also provides consultations, workshops and performance analyses to clients by request.
A photographer, screenwriter and writer-director and now the co-director of Broadmai Productions, Lee James is no stranger to working behind the camera and curtain or in front of them.
Penny is a multilingual Greek producer based in London. Back in Greece, she has been an active member of the Mpastias Theatre group and a founding member of the Chroussa Theatre Group, for which she was the associate producer of six productions.
Moved to London nine years ago, Penny is now an active member of the Equity Non-UK-Born Artists Network and Migrants in Theatre. As a Greek producer in the UK, she is a strong advocate of diversity and inclusion in the theatre industry, which is why she founded Medley Theatre Company, a diverse and inclusive theatre group.
Penny co-founded Broadmai Productions with Lee James Broadwood in early 2023 and produced A Tailor for Ladies, an adaptation of the famous French farce by Georges Feydeau translated by her and adapted by her and Lee James. It was presented at the Cockpit in March for a two-week run with a double cast and is now on its European tour. Penny ensured throughout that the production was as diverse, inclusive and accessible as possible, with a diverse cast and crew from ten different countries, about half of whom identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ Community, and with subtitles in six different languages every night for hard-of-hearing and non-English-speaking audience members as well as with a pre-show sensory experiences for visually impaired audience members. Today, she continues to strive for diversity and inclusivity in the works she produces.
