2017a nuanced performance, incredibly watchable particularly during his descent into madness, to which he brought a great vigour and understanding

2017Paul French commands the audience’s attention in a nuanced performance contrasting quiet dignity with the paranoia bubbling under the surface.

    About me

    I did not discover a passion for performing until I turned 40. From then I have taken every opportunity, within the restrictions of a (non-theatrical) working life to perform in a range of productions and taken every opportunity to extend the range of my performing skills. I have an interest in classic texts from (especially) Shakespeare to the 20th Century, but I am always keen to extend my experience into other areas.
