LynchPin was established in 1999 as a creative partnership by Jack Lynch and Edie Campbell.
The first play to emerge from this partnership was Emily Dickinson & I (originally titled My Life Has Stood), which premièred at the Yvonne Arnaud’s Mill Studio, Guildford, in December 1999. LynchPin Productions Theatre Company took shape from this point and Jack and Edie developed a second show, Cloning Mary Shelley. These two shows are still at the heart of LynchPin, and have been seen in five countries on two continents, as well as touring the UK.
In 2005 Jack and Edie took the decisive step of inviting other people, formally, to join Lynchpin in order to develop the company’s scope, reach and range and became a limited company.
That development is well under-way. Lynchpin is now working effectively as an association of theatre practitioners with a range of skills and interests. The business infrastructure is supporting various strands of work, in addition to the original auto/biographical pieces, which is called One-bi-One. The other strands are Artifice, MainStage, and ScripTease. Please follow the link to any of these strands for additional information.
