Peter Quilter


Peter’s plays have been produced in over 40 countries around the world and translated into 30 languages. He has had three successful shows in London’s West End, a hit run on Broadway and has twice been nominated for the Olivier Award - for Best New Play and Best New Comedy.

His first international success was the comedy, "Glorious!" - the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the worst singer in the world. The play premiered at the Duchess Theatre in London’s West End and has since been seen by over two million people in theatres across five continents. 

His Judy Garland musical-drama "End of the Rainbow" had its world premiere at Sydney Opera House in Australia. The show then played a sold out run in London’s West End before transferring to Broadway in 2012, where the production received nominations for three Tony Awards. In 2019, the play was adapted for the Oscar-winning film Judy, starring Renée Zellweger.

Peter’s two-actor comedy "Duets" has been performed in 20 countries since its premiere production in Sydney. The popular French production (titled "Face à Face") was recently broadcasted “live” on television in Paris and the show will open soon in Russia, Hungary, Romania, Sweden and Brazil.

His other plays include the drama "4000 Days", which has been produced in Prague, Hamburg, Aachen, Sao Paulo, Warsaw and the USA since its London debut in 2016.  Peter is also having success with several new comedies, "The Actress" (which just ended a run at the National Theatre in Sofia), the 3-actor "Bestseller" (which premiered at the International City Theatre in Los Angeles) and "The Hill" (which had its first productions in Prague and Poland in 2020).

Other work includes the pop musical "Boyband", which played a season in London’s West End, had runs in Warsaw and Amsterdam and has been on stage in Bratislava for over 10 years.

Peter’s latest play is the two-actor Comedy “Snowbound”, which he wrote last year while in lockdown at his home in Spain. The show will have premiere productions in several countries next season.
