Apart from being intelligent and intuitive, John has a calm, relaxed style which encouraged all of of us to be bold and creative, while being a team player.
I had forgotten how satisfying this process can be and…Continue

Exploring the underground club culture of the 90s the immersive, promenade performance really caught the audience up in the action. I myself described it as ‘a truly original and innovative piece of work that is sure to leave the audience with a smile on their face and a sudden desire to don their best shell suit.’ Actor Lee Mengo was also nominated for a Theatre Critics of Wales…Continue
