Paul Virides Productions is a producing company, based primarily in London. As well as creating its own productions, PVP provides general management and consultancy services for producers both at home and abroad bringing work to London and the UK. Recent clients include Wildpark Entertainment, TBD Theatricals, and Wendy Beckett's Pascal Productions.


Paul has worked as a producer of theatre and live events since 2011, where he cut his teeth as producer for TakeOver Festival for York Theatre Royal in summer 2012. After leaving York, he took his first show to Edinburgh, and on graduating and returning home to London, joined Hartshorn - Hook Productions as their associate producer.

With Hartshorn - Hook, Paul associate produced, general managed or assisted on the general management of dozens of productions, including Rotterdam (Olivier Award for Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre - Theatre503; Trafalgar Studios; 59E59 Theaters, New York; Arts Theatre); Away From Home (national and international tour); tribute shows to The Rat Pack and The Blues Brothers which played in the West End, Edinburgh, and the Seychelles; American Idiot (Arts Theatre); and Richard II (House of Commons and Arcola).

Paul left H+H in 2016, joining Iris Theatre as marketing manager for their 2017 summer season at the historic St Paul's Church in Covent Garden, where they presented an annual site-specific, semi-immersive season of outdoor theatre. His role there rolled over into the company's indoor concerts that Christmas, and then productions through 2018. He left Iris in October 2018 to focus on running PVP, but returned in summer 2019, initially as interim senior producer, and then as executive director and joint CEO from autumn 2019 to August 2020 alongside artistic director Paul-Ryan Carberry.

From 2022 to 2024 Paul was general manager for David Adkin Limited. With DAL, Paul managed a wide range of productions off-West End, as well as multiple projects in development, including Afterglow (Southwark Playhouse), Disruption (Park Theatre) and F**king Men (Waterloo East Theatre).

In 2018, Paul was awarded the Stage One Bursary for New Producers, and in 2022 took part in the Stage One/Columbia New York exchange. He is a member of the League of Independent Producers.​

Paul Virides Productions was originally founded as Shrapnel Theatre in 2015 by Paul with playwright Isla van Tricht. Between 2015-17 Shrapnel produced four of Isla's plays. Following the New York transfer of her play Underground in 2017, Isla left the company to focus on her writing projects. Shrapnel became Paul Virides Productions in October 2018.
