The Larder

Take another nibble...

The Larder is a dynamic online resource for musical theatre writing curated by Jenifer Toksvig & Rob Hartmann, featuring guest contributions now and then.

Rob is a bookwriter, composer and lyricist, and also a New Yorker. Jen is a bookwriter and lyricist, and is the current co-Chair of the Theatre Committee of the Writers Guild of Great Britain.

Through The Larder, we organise events, facilitate connections between industry professionals, and work as advocates for musical theatre writing in particular.

You're welcome to get in touch with us if you have questions about any aspect of the craft, process or business of writing musicals. We also organise script readings with actors, especially on early drafts.

You can hook up with us all over the place online, mainly under the nick 'Another Nibble'.
