D!ck; The Rise and Fall of Dick Turpin – Producer, Actor

Portfolio image:
This project from Fandango Theatre Co was devised and Dramaturged in the rehearsal room. I produced this project; sourcing  and liaising with venues, organising rehearsals, get ins, licences,  and promotion.   Quick on the trigger but slow on the draw, D!CK; The Rise and Fall of Dick Turpin follows the notoriously ruthless Highwayman on his highway to hell.
Inspired by 1980’s New Romantic pop culture, this (Slightly inaccurate) retelling brushes aside the typical 18th century aesthetic, to challenge the romanticism of history; as we find out why Dick Turpin really is a D!CK. Fandango Theatre co is proud to ‘Stand and Deliver’ this newly devised comedy! This project is proudly supported by SGS college and BIPA, The Bristol Institute of Performing Arts. Expect bad puns and moderate language!

Wind in the Willows (ROKH Dance) – Writer, Director.

This was the first time that the dance school had included Drama in one of it’s shows, this performance was broken down into short scripted scenes and choreographed dances complimented the storytelling.
