Type Of Guys Theatre Company was formed on an overcast afternoon in a Gail’s in North London’s Finsbury Park.
After a meeting with a theatre about putting on ‘I Am Not Black’ a play written & preformed by Type Of Guys Artistic Director, Akin Wright, for an additional run, Joseph Junkere, CEO & Founder, decided to form the company together, along with Head of Media Operations, Blake Mckenzie.
The trio met back in 2021 at Drama School where they formed a close friendship, working together frequently both inside and outside of class. Saturday Squad anyone?
Wright called on both of their expertise when working on IANB, with Junkere agreeing to direct and co-produce the performance, while Mckenzie provided all the technology assistance for the voiceover incorporated in the play.
Now the three them are united together in bringing the Type of Guys mantra to the fore:
“Why open gates when we can break them”
