Mephisto Press


Mephisto was founded in the City of London in May 2008 and produced the West End play, The Pendulum, in June that year.

“Tragic, earnest and beautifully acted”

“An extraordinarily accomplished work.”

“Desperately acute on matters of jeaousy and grand passions”

“A touching and beautiful story that lends itself perfectly to the stage.”

In 2013 Mephisto began co-producing an untitled documentary documentary on bullfighting, directed by Stevan Riley, the Academy Award-nominated director of the 2015 Brando documentary Listen To Me Marlon (for which we also provided a consultant) – and produced by John Battsek, Academy Award-winning producer of One Day In September.

We also provided a consultant on the 2014 documentary Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles directed by Chuck Workman, Academy Award-winning director of Precious Images.


In July 2018 Mephisto produced the book The Bulls Of Pamplona under its imprint Mephisto Press. The official guide to Fiesta of San Fermín in English, it has a foreword from the Mayor of Pamplona, and chapters by famous bull-runners, bullfighters and aficionados, including John Hemingway, grandson of Ernest Hemingway, and Beatrice Welles, daughter of Orson Welles.
