Aiming to create a platform for rising star talent: actors, writers & directors. We produce play readings, poetry evenings and plays in theatres across London that give rising star actors, writers and directors the opportunity to meet, perform, learn and network with each other and with established talent, showcasing exceptional writing.

“I am very moved and excited by Gala and Isabella’s enthusiasm. That thing that fills them and fires them and without that sort of energy and spirit, what’s the point? We all succumb to entropy and so having those people who are continuing to champion the newness of art, the newness of performance are there to be valued” Tamsin Greig

“Any kind of platform that gives an opportunity for new, young voices to be heard in an industry that can so often seem completely impenetrable is fantastic. And already we have seen Platform Presents have great successes in catapulting writers to where they should be and encouraged and nurtured."

“I found Platform Presents absolutely fantastic. I think Gala and Bella are really people to watch. They’re so organised, so passionate. It’s been a total dream, I hope to do more with them.”

Polly Stenham

“You were extraordinarily patient and professional throughout,

I can't tell you how much I admire your coolness and your persistence.”
