MORE ABOUT ME
I keep doing theatre because I have no choice in the matter. From a very young age, I had an abiding faith that this was what I was born to do. This faith has been sorely tried much of the time but also thrillingly rewarded often enough that I carry on.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
My current obsession is playing with time and forging connections between events across different timelines, in the spirit of Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA.
