Directing & Writing ability
I founded and ran a fringe theatre: The Royal George Theatre in Deptford, London for 18 months, during which time I gained experience in every aspect of running a small pub theatre.
Directing credits include: She Stoops to Conquer, 12th Night, Shirley Valentine, The Perfect Murder, The Business of Murder, Butterfies Are Free, The Golden pathway Annual, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Relatively Speaking, The Murder Game, Private Lives, The Mousetrap, The Problem and Froward To The Right.
I have done most jobs in both theatre and on a film set, as I have an insatiable thirst for how things work, and having produced and directed films I needed to know what was required of every job on set so as to reach a full understanding of it. Some of them I would not necessarily want to do again (I think I'm too old to be called best Boy again!) but having done them all gives me a wider understanding of the process and allows my acting to react at the appropriate level.
