Suckerpunch is a creative collective celebrating new writing. Founded by Jo Beattie and Shelley Davenport, we seek to make work for stage and screen that is fresh, innovative and original, drawing on the wealth of talent and creativity in Hastings and St. Leonards.

New faces, new spaces. From readings of experimental new work to innovative stagings in disused spaces, we seek to make original and exciting theatre that challenges convention and engages new audiences.
With a wealth of experience in film and television we strive to test the waters and push the boundaries with experimental new film projects in and around East Sussex.
We believe creativity and freedom of expression can transform the lives of young people struggling to find their way. All our projects offer mentoring opportunities to young people in the local area. Contact us to find out more.
