I’m so excited about coming to Bury St Edmunds for The Secret Garden and breaking my theatrical dry spell brought on by covid. I feel like I’ve aged 10 years since I was last on stage so it’s fitting my first role back would be Lord Craven! I’ve toured extensively over the last 16 years of my career, but I’ve never made it to Suffolk, so I’m glad to be able to stick a new pin on the map. Originally from Edinburgh, and having been brought up for a large chunk of my childhood in Bahrain, I graduated from the Guildford School of Acting in 2006. Since then, some highlights have been:
Touring the world with National Theatre of Scotland’s Let The Right One In (Royal Court/Apollo Theatre/St Ann’s Warehouse NYC/U.S tour); Seeing people queue overnight to get tickets for Macbeth at the Trafalgar Studios; And playing a dolphin, a snail and a postman in Captain Corelli’s Mandolin on tour and at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
Other credits include work at Theatre 503, Royal Opera House, York Theatre Royal, Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, Old Vic, Southwark Playhouse, Northern Broadsides, Birmingham Stage Company and my professional stage debut in Oliver! The Musical at The New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-Under-Lyme.
