Our Origins

Just Druid was born from the desire to write and produce a play about an airman who was killed in WW2.

We quickly realised that in order to grow this idea, we shouldn't put any restrictions on ourselves in terms of how we could tell the story.

Hence the idea of providing unknown stories to the TV/ film industry was born
