About PurpleCoat Productions:
PurpleCoat are currently in development of their first feature film, Route 66A, which Richard Wilson and Matthew Kelly have already signed onto, on the back of being Virgin Media Shorts Finalists in 2013. The film was screened across the country after being selected by a judging panel including Shane Meadows and David Tennant.
PurpleCoat are also supported by Stephen Fry, who funded their last visit to The Dell as part of their Summer of Shakespeare. PurpleCoat presented Midsummer to over 200 people per performance, and are very proud to bring their newly formed Youth Theatre to perform the same play.
