Dermot McLaughlin set up Dermot McLaughlin Productions to produce plays and musicals in the commercial sphere. In the future he will provide General Management and Tour Booking services.

Dermot re-focused his career five years ago onto producing. His 25 plus years prior to this had been working exclusively in theatre - FOH, Box Office, On Stage and Back Stage and as a Producer although he didn't know it at the time!  He was fortunate and delighted to be awarded a Stage One Bursary in 2017 to support him through pre-production for Turn of the Screw, his first commercial venture.


Over the course of his career he has been fortunate to work on the productions of, amongst others Jonathan Church, Alan Ayckbourn, Matthew Warchus, Thea Sharrock, Trevor Nunn and David Gilmour, and in a huge variety of theatres and performances spaces nationally and internationally. His producing interests are broad and have, or will encompass new work, revivals, musicals, tours and small scale/fringe theatre.


He attended the indispensable Stage One workshop for new producers (2014) and has an MA (distinction) Creative Producing from Birkbeck College, University of London. He has spent the past few years working for other producers building up his experience and creating small scale work of his own. Credits include- Garbo Talks Lead Producer (Arts Theatre), there were two brothers Producer/Dramaturg (GLASGAY and Scottish Tour), Penny Arcade B!D!F!W! for Jeremy Goldstein (Arcola/Old Vic Tunnels/Albany), Cover Her Face for Inky Cloak (Bethnal Green Working Mens Club), Lucky Stiff  for Glen Lee (Bridewell Theatre), Bright Skin Light  for Alexis Gregory (Stratford East).
