Collective Theatre

New to October 2023, Stockroom worked with Collective Acting Studio to open a new theatre and creative hub.

Collective Theatre is North London’s newest stage, a space for collaboration and creativity. 

Launching the venue was the world premiere of … Influence! Written in the Stockroom writers room by Georgia Crowther, Maheni Arthur and Chris York, this new show takes you on a journey from reality to deception and fiction. 

Influence starred Kit Young, as seen in Netflix’s Shadow & Bone! Working with director James Hillier and a host of fantastic creatives, Influence mesmerised and surprised.


Bringing back a long-forgotten act, Kit Young stars in this story of deception

Influence tells The Magician’s story.

Descended from and inspired by a long line of mentalists, conjurers, and illusionists, for the first time he brings his skills in acting and magic together, to present an enchanting journey through a long-forgotten act that he is going to bring back to life…

“Theatrical magic show cleverly fogs the boundary between performance and reality” – THE STAGE

️️️★★★★”A magic and theatre lovers’ treat, Influence will keep you on your toes” – A YOUNGISH PERSPECTIVE 

“As with the trickery, the production as a whole is really well-crafted, with particularly Natalie Pryce’s set design perfectly bridging the tricks and The Magician’s reality” – WHATS ON STAGE

️️★★★★  ‘Influence combines the frisson of danger of a magic show with a play’s careful plotting” – LONDON PUB THEATRES

With a few new surprises along the way. The work challenges the audiences’ powers of perception, and asks them if they can really believe what they see and hear?
