Wrested Veil is a producing company unveiling stories with potency and flourish, founded in 2017 to produce Footprints On The Moon at the Finborough Theatre. We have a desire to reveal stories that explore truth and the human story behind real world issues, in the hope of sparking change. Our second co-production was Seeds (Spring 2020). Our next production will be 'Before Evening Comes' at Theatre503 in 2021
