Meet the Team

Neil Laidlaw


Jenny Halsey


Britta Wicke


Bryony Taylor

Executive assistant

Neil trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where he graduated with a degree in Dramatic Studies. Since then, RSAMD have changed their name, but he has decided not to take that personally.

Neil has been lucky enough to have been able to keep working in theatre since he left drama school. He has produced, general managed, stage managed, accounted, production managed, production electricianed and occasionally a spot of wardrobe. A long time ago, he thought he wanted to act and direct, but it is probably a very good thing for everyone else that never happened. Yet. 

If in doubt, he’ll have a Grey Goose Martini, very dry with a twist.

Jenny joined Neil Laidlaw Productions in early 2015. Prior to working for NLP, she worked at the Pleasance Theatre and The Bush. Before working in theatre, she spent six years teaching secondary school maths before completing a one-year acting course at Drama Studio London.

Since joining NLP, Jenny has worked as Production Accountant on many shows including Bat Out of Hell, Alice’s Adventures Underground, Show Boat, and McQueen and as the Production Coordinator on Canned laughter and Beyond the Fence.

Britta joined Neil Laidlaw Productions in November 2016 and is working on a part-time basis on production payroll and purchase ledger across current projects.

Britta joined NLP after working at Glynis Henderson Productions for five years as an Accounts Assistant and Bookkeeper handling payroll, purchase and sales ledger for UK based and international touring productions of Stomp and other GHP projects.

Originally from Germany, Britta came to the UK in 1998 and was working as a Project Manager and Business Analyst before taking a 4-year break after her daughter was born. She enjoys being able to combine her passion for theatre with her work.


Bryony joined Neil Laidlaw Productions  in 2018 and supports Neil in the development of new and future projects, as well as providing general office support.

Bryony moved to NLP after working in Boutique Media Finance as a Commercial Associate. Before that, she provided administrative support for several arts institutions including and DACS and RIBA.

In her spare time, Bryony studies a Modern and Contemporary Literature Masters at Birkbeck College. She also writes theatre reviews and arts features for a number of online magazines.
