Urban Trendz Theatre was founded in 2016 by Ed Green and Laura Elizabeth.
Urban Trendz is a Theatre and Production company: both dedicated to bring fresh innovative writing to the stage. We use minimalist settings in imaginative ways to bring our subjects to life, allowing the audience to let their imaginations become part of our shows. We tackle uncomfortable subjects that often lie below the surface of our society in order to shed a bright light on what is right before us. We currently have a few projects we are working on which will we will be taking to a range of venues across the UK on tour including Edinburgh Festival.
We do look to work with new writers, directors and actors. If you would like to work with us please let us know by going onto the 'contact us' page and we will ensure we get back to you.

Ed Green, founder and artistic director.
Ed has always been an avid theatre goer from a very young age. But he came late to active participation, first as an actor winning multiple nominations and awards and then as a director forming Tin Shed Theatre Company to undertake the contemporary darkly comic drama that he loves. That company was the seed for a number of further award winning exploits that excited audiences between 2001 and 2013 until the name was usurped by a group of South Walean students. Urban Trendz Theatre Company is now Ed’s production base which started its life in 2016 with his new collaborator Laura Bason in “Where do little birds go?” by Camilla Whitehill to build on the previous body of work that Ed undertook such as “PVT Wars”, “The Beauty Queen of Leenane” (described by the East Anglian Times as “the best piece of drama seen on the Felixstowe stage in 10 years”), “When a man knows” and “Breathing Corpses” among many others. Ed has also appeared in a number of short film – “A good Slap”, “The Crab” and “Castle of the Rock” .
