Paul is probably best known as a TV presenter, having presented shows such as ITV's 'Wheel of Fortune', 'The Disney Club' and 'Don't Try This At Home' with Davina McCall. He is also a critically acclaimed author having written two novels: 'Who Killed Simon Peters?' and 'Diary of a C-List Celeb' (in no way autobiographical… honest!). Paul is no stranger to pantomime having written, directed, produced or appeared in them for the last 28 years. He is very proud of Evolution's reputation for high quality productions and is thrilled to have achieved his ambition of producing at some of the best theatres in the country.

Emily began working in the theatre at a very young age, most often for her parents' company, Kevin Wood Productions. On leaving Oxford University where she gained a degree in French and Italian literature. Emily spent four years working as a production manager on films all over the world. But even shooting with Nicole Kidman in New York wasn't enough to keep her away from the lure of the family business. In 2003 she returned to the UK to produce pantomimes alongside her father. Maintaining the family feel of the company, Emily now runs Evolution with her husband Paul Hendy. Fittingly, Emily and Paul met during a pantomime run -Beauty and the Beast at The Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury in 1997. Probably their best productions to date are their children, Freddie (Comedy Consultant), Poppy Sunshine (Executive in Charge of Tantrums) and Jago (Chief Nappy Filler).
