They Built It. No One Came.

Eight years ago Tobias and Alexander formed a commune based on their shared vision of a peaceful and harmonious community.

They are still awaiting their first member.

They Built It. No One Came was shortlisted for the Pleasance Charlie Hartill Award in 2016. It subsequently went on to preview at the New Diorama before successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Greenwich Theatre. 

It will return to the New Diorama as part of it's UK tour this summer, other venues include: The Brighton Fringe, The Sheffield Crucible, The Old Firestation, The Swallow Theatre and The Ryan Centre.  The show is inspired by a true story published in The New York Times by Penelope Green in 2015. 

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.


Fledgling Theatre Company formed in 2014 after graduating together from The Royal Central School of Speech Drama. We have bases in both London and Sydney and focus on devised work as an ensemble and new writing.

"Reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch…Radiating warmth and with a very tight script, They Built It. No One Came is a style of storytelling that sits perfectly within its 1-hour time slot."
