Welcome to The Peggy Ramsay Foundation

Peggy Ramsay was one of the best-known play agents in the United Kingdom during the second half of the Twentieth Century.  When she died in 1991 her estate was left for charitable purposes to help writers and writing for the stage.  The Peggy Ramsay Foundation was established in pursuance of this objective.


The Peggy Ramsay Foundation seeks to perpetuate Peggy Ramsay’s ideals, by directly helping dramatists at very different stages of experience in ways which we are determined to keep as quick and unbureaucratic as possible.


The Foundation’s Trustees are:

  • Neil Adleman (Chair)
  • Lizzie Ball
  • Simon Callow CBE
  • Georgia Gatti
  • Sir David Hare
  • Tamara Harvey
  • Holly Kendrick
  • Will Mortimer
  • Dame Harriet Walter DBE


The Foundation is a registered charity number 1015427.
