    About me

    After sixteen years working in the creative industry, I wish to now focus on working as a Theatre Director (with local, regional and national opportunities all considered), although I would consider joint Creative-Administrative production opportunities as well, while my experience with London venue management would leave me open to considering an Artistic Director position. However, the critical and commercial response to my directing efforts has left me feeling encouraged that I have found a place where I can successfully achieve continually strong results artistically. In the last 18 months, I have overseen London revivals of Jerusalem and Let the Right One In, and directed two NT Connection productions (Hospital Food and Eclipse). I was also selected to direct the 80th Anniversary of the RNIB's Talking Books production of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd with Juliet Stevenson.

    My previous experience is as a Writer / Director / Producer with an eight year professional history of working in radio and theatre. I have also served as an Associate Director to LOST Theatre, London (since 2014-) and as an Acting Artistic Director (for Wireless Theatre). This has lead to positions at LAMDA and RADA as an industry tutor.

    In 2009, I co-created of The Springheel Saga with Robert Valentine which is heard in over 50 countries (please see below in Industry Awards for more information) worldwide. This series features Christopher Finney, Ben Whitehead, Julian Glover, David Benson, Nicholas Parsons, Ashley McGuire, Jeremy Stockwell, Jenny Runacre, Matthew Kelly, Louis Tamone and Shane Rimmer. Robert and I also co-wrote, adapted and produced Dead London, the winning entry of the US War Of The Worlds 75th Anniversary Competition (2013). Together, we are co-founding a new genre-focused feature film production company, known as Penny Gaff Productions Ltd.

    Professional Recommendations

    Fraser Milroy Technical Manager / Director

    I have had the pleasure to work with Jack for a year now on a number of different productions. As a Director I have found him to be extremely open to collaboration and his rehearsal room is always a welcoming creative environment. His ability to work with young people and help them grow as artists is excellent and is displayed perfectly in his work with the LOST Young Company and their wonderful contributions to the National Theatre Connections Festival. He is a hard working, creative, honest, gentleman who I sincerely hope to work with for many years to come.
