Being an Actor

I began my apprenticeship as a writer and director  by becoming an actor. In ten years in rehearsal rooms across the country I learnt some cardinal sins and immutable laws on what made a good play and how to spoil it with bad direction. Having said that bad acting can ruin both. I’ve probably done my share of it but roles I look back on with a degree of satisfaction include,

George ( and Candy in a Sherman Theatre production) in MICE AND MEN at the Torch Theatre*, Macduff with Moving Being, Tom in THE GLASS MENAGARIE at Derby Playhouse, Mister Wright in NO MORE SITTING ON THE OLD SCHOOL BENCH, Bri in DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG, both  at the Sherman.
