Frantic Assembly was founded in 1994 by Scott Graham, Steven Hoggett and Vicki Middleton.

"We were three students at Swansea University. We were suddenly inspired and then encouraged to form our own theatre company. This reckless and terrifying leap was the best thing we ever did.

We were English Literature and Geography graduates and as such we were untrained in any aspect of theatre or dance but we were willing to learn and devoured any opportunity that came our way. As soon as we learned something we tried to teach it and pass it on.

This simple starting point of encouragement, learning and training has been at the heart of the company ever since."

– Scott Graham, Artistic Director and Co-Founder
