Emma Brünjes

Emma Brünjes established ebp in 2013 following ten years’ experience in theatre and comedy. Within 3 years she was nominated for an Olivier Award for ALICE'S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND at The Vaults. The company has quickly established itself as a producer of great productions and great talent across its broad portfolio. In 2016 ebp received its first Olivier nomination for ALICE'S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND. Emma has recently been nominated for The Hospital Club 100 Awards. Since 2013, ebp has produced over 50 productions and sold over 400,000 tickets.

Despite graduating with a BSC in Political Sciences and History from the London School of Economics, Emma’s path was always set towards the theatre having trained as dancer, singer and actress before realising her interest and strength lay behind the curtain.

Emma’s first job was at Avalon where she rose quickly through the ranks to Head of Avalon Promotions promoting over 80 comedians on tour in the UK, West End, Edinburgh Festival and internationally working with Frank Skinner, Harry Hill, Al Murray, Russell Howard, Jenny Éclair and Lee Mack amongst others. Emma produced GRUMPY OLD WOMEN LIVE on 7 UK tours, 2 West End seasons, on tour in Australia and licensed productions in Iceland and Finland.

Alongside her time at Avalon Emma was selected as a Producer for the inaugural Old Vic New Voices Company in 2006. Emma subsequently joined new writing theatre company, nabokov, as Associate Producer where she co-commissioned and produced Mike Bartlett’s ARTEFACTS. The production opened at the Bush Theatre following a UK tour and transferred to 59E59 Brits off Broadway Festival.  The production won the Old Vic New Voices New Production award and Emma was the recipient of a Stage One Bursary. Emma continues her association with nabokov as Chair of the Artistic Board.

Her entrepreneurial spirit and broad interests caught the eye of Nica Burns and she was invited to join Nimax Theatres as General Manager of Productions and Programming and Producer of the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards. Productions included:  WHEN WE ARE MARRIED (Garrick), IN A FOREST DARK AND DEEP (Vaudeville), LONG DAYS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT - Olivier Award for Best Revival 2013 - (Apollo), UNCLE VANYA (Vaudeville), THE HURLY BURLY SHOW (Duchess), MEOW MEOW (Apollo), and THE BOY WITH TAPE ON HIS FACE (Duchess).

In March 2013 ebp was founded to pursue new productions with colleagues and friends in the industry. Since its inception at the kitchen table the company has now got 11 members of staff, an office in Covent Garden, produced over 40 production and sold over 450,000 tickets. The motto is simple – work with the best on the very best production in the entertainment industry.

In May 2016 Emma joined forces with her brother Ralph to set-up ebp live, a bespoke new live ticketing provider.

Emma is a member of the Society of London Theatre and on the board of the League of Independent Producers.
