#JMKSpace Making Work as a Collective: The Wardrobe Ensemble

Join Jesse Meadows and Helena Middleton, two founding members of The Wardrobe Ensemble, to explore devising theatre as an ensemble.

The Wardrobe Ensemble are a group of theatre artists working together to make new plays that dissect the twenty-first century experience. Formed in 2011, they have made 15 shows which have toured nationally and internationally, including to the National Theatre and Trafalgar Studios. Their latest production, The Last of The Pelican Daughters, is a co-production with Complicite and was embarking on a national tour when the country went into lockdown.

This #JMKSpace event is open to all.  It takes the place of our directors' groups normally hosted by Reading Rep, Salisbury Playhouse and The Nuffield Theatres.

The workshop will take place 2.00 - 4.00 p.m on Friday May 22nd on Zoom, facilitated by Nik Partridge. 

To reserve your free place, and receive a Zoom invitation, please email- nik@jmktrust.org

More #JMKSpace open-access events to be announced soon.


The Wardrobe Ensemble is one of very few large ensemble companies currently making work in the UK. Ensemble work is becoming ever rarer due to the economic climate but the quality of the shows the company produce bears witness to the importance and success of the model.

‘The Wardrobe Ensemble fills us with joy and reminds us why we love working in theatre.’
