Hooked Theatre is a female led theatre company, founded by Holly Kellingray and Brooke Jones in 2017. They founded this company in the hope of making exciting and relevant theatre.
After graduating from the Art's University Bournemouth's Acting course and 3 years of unforgettable experiences together, they have built an invaluable bond which benefits them working together. Their first devised show, HUMAN, premiered at Camden Fringe Festival in 2017, along with the launch of the company. It was here they coined their theatrical style of mixing spoken word and real stories.
Their aim is to tell you weird and wonderful stories with their specialist skills, whilst supporting other artists in the industry. They have a passion for New Writing & Spoken Word; it was this that sparked the beginning of their Scratch Nights in 2019.
They are beginning their journey in creating 'Hooked Intensified', courses for young artists, who are in a position that want to train and learn more about theatre, but lack access to the arts.
"Hooked is made up of two women who inspire each other everyday and we aim to inject this passion back into society."
"There's never a dull moment when Brooke and I work together. That's what makes working together so exciting. This has been the most valuable journey of my creative career."
