A four-part drama following the fortunes of a left-wing theatre company, written by acclaimed dramatist Doug Lucie.

We meet the Stage Left Theatre Collective in 1985: founder members Emma (artistic manager) and Robert (literary manager), director Saul, playwright Alan, and finance manager, Frank.

Stage Left follows the fate of the company over the course of the past four decades, catching up with the characters as they negotiate the cultural and economic climate in which they find themselves. There are clashing ideals, conflicting egos, personal grievances, differing tastes and petty quarrels, but at the heart of the drama is the story of a group of idealistic friends who see their vision refined, altered, dented, rebuilt and corroded by the wider artistic and cultural landscape.

A sharp, satirical drama starring Ewan Bailey, Alex Jennings, Richard Lumsden, Anna Madeley, Gerard McDermot and Tracy Wiles.
