"I found Platform Presents absolutely fantastic. I think Gala and Bella are people to watch. They're just so organised, so passionate. It's been a total dream; I hope to do more with them." Polly Stenham, Playwright.

"We are both fascinated by the craft of theatre, television and film, but also the need which exists in this incredibly competitive industry to give a platform to rising star talent, and female voices. So we decided, without any blueprint, to set up a production company that did just this. I was inspired by the off-Broadway culture of underground theatre in New York, where young talent can take part in play readings or film readings. We brought this concept to the UK to showcase rising stars, our aim to build a collaborative, creative community for the up-and-coming alongside established artists." Harper's Bazaar 2018"
