  • Education

    19853 yr. ActingCrewe and Alsager College

    Additional Skills

    I can juggle three balls, cook, light a fire from scratch, change a tyre, build things from wood (I built my own bed, and spent a couple of summers building half timbered houses). I'm practical.

    I've seen every one of Shakespeare's plays (except Pericles), I can hand sew really neatly, and I draw cartoons.

    Additional Information

    I began working in theatre at the age of 16 at the Stoke Vic Theatre in the Round. Even though I have worked at the Hackney Empire as a techie for 30 years (and have worked more panto there than anyone living) I am still much more interested in non-conventional performance spaces.

    For the last nine years my day job has been as tour guide, researcher and box office manager at The Clink Prison Museum; this has provided ample scope to keep inventive and spontaneous. I am very familiar with English History and so find it easy to get into period idiom and attitudes.

    About me

    Versatile, creative, funny character actor; very well-read, highly inventive and imaginative, with a huge voice, inherited from my RSM great grandfather. I have been performing in lots of site-specific and living history projects since 1988, I have developed my own side show about the Plantagenet Succession, devised and toured a one man show about Shakespeare, and I make my own no-budget (so far) films, most recently Macbeth.
