One NEW Foot in the WEBSITE

We’re starting the new year with a new website! It’s simpler, easier, and we’re very excited about it. Have a gander around, wander down memory lane with our previous shows on the left, and why not sign up to get a little notification whenever we post news.

One NEW Foot in the VLOG

As we jump into the new year we land with a couple of new videos! Jem has been busy answering your questions on all things arts and creation, and the first two videos have dropped already! Give them a watch, subscribe so you never miss one again, and send us your questions for Jem to figure out How to…


This year we’re running at a solo show, and we need a DIRECTOR to point us in the right direction.

Jem is a young girl living in the post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the streets. But despite the hardships of this new life, she’s started an Anonymous Group for Happiness; because everyone deserves to be happy, even if the world is ending.

The show is funny, whimsical and pointed. A one woman show, this show deals with the themes of happiness, unhappiness, addiction and a phobia of zombies.

But it needs a director. If you’re interested, send your CV and examples of your work to by February 1st. If you aren’t a director and want to get involved, also reach out to us! And do feel free to share with anyone you think might love this project as much as we do.

There you go! A little round up of the month. We’re very excited about this year and can’t wait to see where it takes us all.

Until next time,

Jem, Sean and Joe

New Year, New Things: an introduction to OFitD in 2018

Hello Wonderful People!

Welcome to 2018! This year is a big one for us here at One Foot in the Door and we’re not wasting any time. We have a lot of exciting things to share with you, and the first thing we’re doing to achieve that is producing regular updates.
In these updates we’ll let you know about all of the upcoming projects we’ve got on and about all of the opportunities that come along with them, so if you’re wanting to keep up to date make sure you’ve subscribed to our website and you’ll be the first to know about everything One Foot in the Door.

Jemma working hard..What is One Foot in the Door Productions?
The first thing we want to do with these updates is let everyone know exactly what we are about and what we want to do. So, to get everyone up to speed…

One Foot in the Door Productions is a creative collective based across the UK, but our network is not restricted by country borders. If you are creative and want to get involved, no matter where you are in the world, then throw us an email at or a tweet @ofitd with what you have to bring and we’ll get you involved. We are a collective, and members come and go on a project by project basis. The OFitD collective is led by Jemma Rowlston and Sean Brady as the Creative Producers, as well as Louise Barclay Johnson as the General Manager. It’s their role to guide productions, make sure there is a program of projects within the collective and keep all the paperwork and budgets in check.
OfitD came together with the aim to continue being creative once leaving the bubble of university. Our long-term goal being to open a community multi-arts centre with versatile studio spaces, programs and opportunities, in order give artists of any medium a place to come together and create.
There are no limitations in the collective: no project too big or too little! We’re always looking to try new things. We’re more than just theatre, and we’ll venture into any medium that suits a project best – whether that’s a radio play or web series. OFitD strives to never avoid any creative medium.

So, What’s Coming Up Next?
We’ll update you properly on the projects we have coming up very soon, but for now here’s a whirlwind tour…

Jones had a dream to one day own the coolest, best bar in London. Today, with his best friend Nat, he runs that bar. He gave up everything to follow his destiny. It seemed fated that he ends up here one day, but when new information comes to light and the long-lost love of his life reappears he has to make the decision: give in to ‘fate’ or make his own destiny.

This is a comedic immersive show commissioned by The Brewers Inn, Wandsworth, London. It is due to play from Jan 29th – Feb 3rd 2018 (but not playing on Jan 31st). Tickets for this show are available by calling box office – 02088744128 or by emailing us at
And more information can be found on both our facebook page and website.

Just Don’t Call it Jumanji
Alex has always wanted her life to be just like an 80s movie. Everything was so much better, so much rawer and so much more genuine than it is now in a world full of mobile phones and Facebook. She is an absolute 80s film buff, which comes in handy when she wakes up in an 80s movie trivia game where the only way out is to live through 80s films.
This is a whimsy, funny, reference packed love letter of a theatre production that will play on the fringe circuit and anywhere it can stick its nose into. Currently it’s in its final script edit before we go into production. More soon…

Lost in Spaces
For David and Aloone (née Alan), the chance discovery of an unmapped moon is the perfect opportunity to stretch their legs and prod the unknown. But after encountering strange apparitions on the moon’s surface, and an even stranger administrator, what starts as a jolly-jaunt planet-side soon turns into perilous journey through space, time and a small bungalow in the West Midlands.

With shades of Hitchhiker’s Guide and more synths than frankly appropriate, Lost in Spaces is a new, four-part audio play currently in production to be released digitally later this year. Created by Joe Askew, produced in partnership with OFitD with illustrations by Jessica De Kroon, we’re excited to be offering all four parts completely free, so there’ll really be no excuse!

There’s even more in the pipeline for the year to come, so watch this space! Don’t forget you can also keep up-to-date with all of our work by following us on facebook and twitter.

How to… with Jem

Hello Wonderful People!

After a long period of planning, scheming and plotting we’re finally back on the releasing wagon! And this time it’s online, so you can enjoy whenever and wherever you are. Boy have we got some exciting new things for you!

The first new venture we’d like to introduce to you is our new series:
How to… With Jem

In these videos, Jem will give tips, hints and guides on how to best get by in life and in the pro world. Whether it be how to get your foot in the door (pun intended?) or explaining how things in the arts, film and theatre world work, these videos will help you be the best you that you can be. We’ll be aiming to post these every two weeks.

We hope you enjoy these videos as much we do, and find them useful! And if there is anything you want a video on, then let us know!

Survived another Edinburgh Fringe

Hello wonderful people!

There are some very cool and interesting things on the horizon here at One Foot in the Door Productions, the first being these new little updates! We have a small family of you who follow us and we know it’s nice to know what’s happening before it happens, so we’ll be blogging and vlogging a little more often from now on in. As regularly as we can we’ll be posting updates on what we are doing and where (and even how you can get involved!) here on the OFitD website and through all of our channels. This comes as a result of the first big announcement. Drum roll please!

After the awesome success of Cats and Dogs Give the Best Advice at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 (thank you!), we have decided not to take a show to EdFringe this year. For the past two years we have taken shows and we’ve loved every moment of it, but we’re feeling a change in the wind for what we do this year. We want to thank everyone who supported us in living the EdFringe dream over the past two years, from Spotlites who hosted the crazy puppets of Cats and Dogs, to those wonderful stars who gave us a helping hand flyering out in the sun (you know who you are!), to the casts and crews whom we couldn’t have taken the shows without, and to you, the people who have supported us, seen our shows and just liked our posts to make us feel like we’re not just doing this all for ourselves. You have all been astonishing and we want to thank you for helping us cross EdFringe off of our bucket list (for now!).

BUT this means some very exciting things for both you and us. As we won’t be pouring all of our energy into one big show to be seen primarily by audiences in Scotland in the middle of the summer, we are now able to create more regular, more diverse work. We’re stepping up to our name of being a production company this year and have many projects on the go now. We’ll be announcing the detail of these very soon, so keep an eye out!

For now through, we’d like to say thank you again for all of your support – it means the world to us – and stay tuned for some exciting new developments in the world of One Foot in the Door Productions.

– Jem & Sean
