Hardboiled is a co-production between Rhum and Clay Theatre Company and The Watermill Theatre, and is a collaboration with director Beth Flintoff.

Rhum and Clay is a physical theatre ensemble that tells stories in mischievous and surprising ways:  inventive shows that are inventive, playful and cinematic. The company formed in 2011 at Ecole Jacques Lecoq, where they trained together.

Beth Flintoff is a director/writer based at The Watermill Theatre, where she has worked on 15 productions, including both of The Watermill’s collaborations with Rhum and Clay, Hardboiled: The Fall of Sam Shadow and Jekyll and Hyde.

From its home in a converted Watermill in rural West Berkshire, which seats just 220 people, The Watermill Theatre has created award-winning work that has been recognised throughout the UK and abroad. The very best artists and creative teams, both established and at early stages of their careers, are the theatre’s lifeblood, earning The Watermill a reputation as one of the most successful producing theatres in the country.
