Profile Information

What I do:
Freelance director, writer, actor and general theatre bod.
A little more about me:
Brought up in Cardiff, started with the National Youth Theatre of Wales (more years than I care to remember). Trained first as an actor at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, then as a director at Birkbeck University of London. Have worked all over the place in theatre – fringe, regional rep, TIE, open-air, site-specific, London commercial – but am now based back in Cardiff. Live with my partner, who is a fabulous dancer, choreographer and dance teacher.
Projects I’m working on:
Currently Drama tutor and co-manager of Go Theatre School - a successful Cardiff-based performing arts school for young people.
Co-Producer of andGo Productions. 2013 saw Ayckbourn's Confusions and Alice In Wonderland at Chapter. Alice made a reappearance at the Everyman Summer Festival and played to hundreds in the open air. November saw a production of The Flint Street Nativity at a few venues around Cardiff. Currently working on a production of Bouncers for schools and public audiences at St David's Hall, Cardiff followed by a stage adaptation of Blackadder at the 2014 Everyman Summer Festival. In addition to directing duties, I am co-producing The Little Mermaid for children and family audiences.

A Play a Week ... Every Week!

This month, I’m off to direct a play for what is the last surviving Equity standard weekly rep season in the country.

The Frinton Summer Season in Essex is now in its 69th year. Every summer, a company of professional actors and directors arrive in this genteel seaside town to rehearse and stage 8 plays in 9 weeks over the summer months. This is my fourth year and I’m staging a thriller called Veronica’s Room by Ira Levin; other shows in the season include One For The Road,… Continue
