Filip Krenus set up Honey-tongued Theatre Productions in 2012 and is one of the co-founders of Midsummer Scene Festival. He produced the first festival of Croatian contemporary drama in London, Short Shrift, and staged a musical Hedgehog’s Home in the same year. In 2015 Filip has set up LittleBIG Shakespeare series for young audiences. He translated into Croatian the works of Steven Berkoff, Clare Dowie and Langford Wilson and he translated into English the plays by Croatian playwrights Vlatka Vorkapić and Dino Pešut and the classics Marin Držić and Ranko Marinković.
