PROJECTS AND PRODUCTIONS

I conceive and run large-scale, longer term projects working with communities defined by place and / or identity, working with key academic, creative and community-based partners. These projects involve the extensive contributions of citizen researchers and local amateur performers and crew to discover, explore and create stories inspired by the region’s heritage.

I also create smaller scale, medium-term projects that are immediately adaptable to non-theatre spaces, include strong elements of public participation or interaction and are focussed on growing an audience both inside and outside of the theatre.

I deliver two distinct categories of performance product:

  • professional and original touring shows
  • bespoke performance commissions
Beyond being a fantastic piece of community theatre that had demonstrable impact across a range of sectors (educational, social, cultural), ‘Come Yew In’ should be remembered as a significant, and timely, work of community activism. I am extremely proud to have been a part of it, and I look forward to developing its legacy phase over the next couple of years in collaboration with The Common Lot and Schools of Sanctuary.

What a show! Spectacular, original, hilarious and quite brilliantly pulled together by the terrific rabble that is the Common Lot – Boudicca – The Pantomine.

“ … after the culmination of many months hard work from yourselves and residents in the community it was truly amazing to see the amount of people who turned out … a thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all. A true success and one that I am sure will be talked about in Tasburgh for some time to come

Many thanks for inviting me along this morning – an inspirational, funny and yummy start to the morning. Good luck with the rest of the run. I’ll try to come along again.

They were not only enthralled by the story of Macbeth, but also by your ability to keep them on the edge of their seats for over an hour.
