Continuing this commitment to exciting new writing, last year ATG Productions presented the playwriting debut of internationally acclaimed actor Matthew Perry (Friends, The Odd Couple) in the world premiere of The End of Longing.
ATG Productions also presented the phenomenally successful Jamie Lloyd Company (JLC) series at Trafalgar Studios and the Duke of York’s Theatre, which combined pertinent programming and accessible pricing with the aim of enabling the development of a new, more diverse theatrical audience.

ATG Productions reunited with Lane and Yazbek in 2015 on the stage adaptation of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Playhouse Theatre), Pedro Almodóvar’s 1988 film of the same name starring Tamsin Greig and Haydn Gwynne.
