ABOUT US… 

Chippy Lane Productions Ltd. (CLP) was founded in 2016 by Rebecca Jade Hammond, a Cardiff born actor, writer and producer. CLP’s primary mission is to promote Welsh and Wales-based theatre and talent, to audiences in and beyond Wales. “Regional work is important, audiences want to hear stories from everywhere” (CLP in Arts Scene In Wales, 2016).

CLP is a London-based Welsh company created in response to our research that showed a lack of Welsh work being produced beyond Wales. The arts, in Wales and from Welsh origin, are undergoing change and there is a wealth of excitement for writing, acting and theatre that is new, diverse and vibrant. We achieve our goal by building relationships with established Welsh and Wales-based playwrights, encouraging and producing new work, and reaching out to Welsh communities living inside and outside of Wales. “The grass roots of Welsh performance are irrepressible” (CLP in Theatre In Wales, 2018).

As a young company Chippy Lane has achieved a tremendous amount in a short space of time with limited resources and funding. At the helm of this company is Artistic Director Rebecca Jade Hammond. Her commitment and dedication to the championing of the Welsh and Wales-based voices has been met with open arms from fellow creatives. Her position and perspective as a Welsh company operating outside of Wales developing work across both Wales and England, bridging the gap between two countries has led to interest from arts media (The Guardian, The Stage, Wales Arts Review, Arts Desk, Exeunt, What’s On Stage, GetTheChanceWales, Arts Scene in Wales, Western Mail). Rebecca was also recently recognised as a ‘100 Women of Wales’ 2018 and 2019 by Wales Arts Review, which highlights women who are ones to watch, and inspiring the arts in Wales.  

“Chippy Lane Productions might not be a common name on theatre-goers’ tongues, but this is evidence it might soon be.” 
Arts Desk  ★★★★

” If Chippy Lane’s second production was to be summed up in one word, that word would almost certainly be ‘love’. Both on- and off-stage, love permeates through every nook and cranny.”

Wales Arts Review

“Rebecca is pioneering opportunities for women writers from Wales to champion their abilities and break through the boundaries and stereotypes of writing they have previously been confined.”
The Cardiffian
