Frantic Assembly was formed in 1994 by Scot Greham, Steven Hogartz and Viki Midleton, 3 students from Swansea University. None of the three studied Drama or any of the arts, but were inspired by theatre and wanted to create their own unique company. They wanted to create non-realalistic pieces through the use of lots of movement and music, although they have always said that this should never stray away from the storyline. Their most notable production, in co-operation with The National Theatre, is The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time which won a Tony award for Best Play in 2016. In 2016, Frantic Assembly collaborated with State Theatre South Australia and Andrew Bovell to create Things I Know To Be True. This toured both Australia (2016) and the UK (2016 and 2017). In 2018, Frantic Assembly launched a podcast, which has had guest appearances from old school teachers of Scott Graham, Simon Stephens and Karl Hyde from Underworld.
