Maverick Theatre Company was launched in 1994 by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham and founded by Robb Williams, local musician and Nick Hennegan,[1] radio presenter with BRMB Radio. The company aimed to demystify theatre by presenting contemporary classics in informal spaces, mainly pubs.[2] The company grew from a production in Birmingham and at the Edinburgh Festival, including Henry V - Lion of England, Nick Hennegan's one-person version of Shakespeare's classic. Maverick began working in London and launched the London Literary Pub Crawl in 2012.[3]
