Who We Are

Fireside Folktales is the latest project from South West London-based theatre company Shadow Road Productions and is run by Emma King-Farlow and Amy Floyd.


The Artistic Director of Shadow Road, founder and director of the UNBROKEN Mental Health Awareness Festival and Short Film Prize, and a former trustee of the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes, Emma is also a traditionally published children’s author and a professional member of both Stage Directors UK and the Society of Authors.

Her work has been performed in a wide range of venues, from the West End to the fringe. Credits include Dreams from the Pit (writer/director/co-producer, Palace Theatre), The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe (director/producer, St Mary’s Barnes), Robin Hood (writer/director/producer, London Wetland Centre),  Jesus Christ Superstar (director, fringe), Californian Lives (director, King’s Head Theatre & OSO Arts Centre), Climate Change (writer, Fortune Theatre) and The Story (director, Theatre503).  She has directed casts ranging in size from one to fifty-one and in age from seven to eighty-plus, run workshops for both children and adults, and has experience working in partnership with numerous charities and organisations.

Emma is delighted not only to be turning her dream of ‘theatre in a tent’ into a reality, but also to be doing so together with the best team of hugely talented friends she could have asked for to accompany her on this slightly mad but wonderful adventure!

A producer and actress who has been working in the film industry for six years and co-producing the UNBROKEN Festival & Short Film Prize with Emma since 2017, Amy spent 2018 in Australia where she fight coordinated the feature film No Such Thing As Monsters and assisted stage combat classes at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).

Amy is an advanced dramatic combat fighter with the British Academy of Dramatic Combat and is currently assisting at Rose Bruford College in London. An exciting and fiery performer, she is highly skilled in fighting for film and theatre and has worked with Captivate Action since 2014.

Amy's favourite legend is King Arthur: magic, mystery, daring knights, swords and adventure!  She also believes that no campfire is complete without marshmallows to roast over it...
