2020Christopher Page is a complete scene-stealer, with most of the play's comic highlights... the perfect mix of naivety and impudence.

2020Christopher Page excels as the title role, bringing the ambitious but ultimately doomed character to life with great sensitivity.

2020Christopher Connolly performs well in the dual roles of Charlotte's loving yet stifling husband Max and the unhelpful Dr Weir.

2020Page's Padraic hits the right note in his combination of menace and blindsided lack of understanding of humanity.

2020Connolly's fine menace... create[s] a creepy, unnerving and suffocating drama.

2017Christopher Page as Krapp is consistently mesmeric...Page has wonderful gravity: there is theatrical animus in every movement.

    About me

    I see acting as a chance to explore a script in three dimensions - to interpret a character not only intellectually, but physically. Having graduated from Oxford University in English Literature, I am now seeking to make my mark in the acting world. Since leaving university I have worked on several short films, and auditioned for major TV series and films, including BBC's Noughts and Crosses and Kingsman: The Great Game. In February I filmed for three days in Morocco, working on Spanish miniseries 'Glow and Darkness' (dir. Jose Luis Moreno).
