    About me

    Peter has a wealth of experience as an actor-facilitator, performing in venues from Westminster abbey to a subway in Lisbon and with theatre companies across Britain and Europe.

    He was bitten by the acting bug aged eleven and was lucky to be mentored by Geoff Hardisty, who inspired thousands of Teesside young hopefuls to engage with the arts. Peter went on to train in Drama at Huddersfield University before undertaking a performance internship with Point Blank Theatre, Sheffield. Since then, he has worked continually as an actor-facilitator for a range of audiences through community arts, theatre-in-education and on small-mid scale touring engagements across the UK, as well as national tours of Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Netherlands.

    Peter is very excited to be working in these fields and hopes to contribute his sense of humour and authentic acting ability to many more theatre projects.
