Welcome to Centre Stage

Within these pages you will find some of my personal favourite subjects and experiences within the theatre - as an actor, director, playwright and drama tutor.

As you can see by the headings above, there are a range of topics you can read. The Hammer details the production of a play written by myself, based on my Grandfather’s WWII diaries; and Traveller explores the development of my film dealing with depression. Other subjects are designed as an introduction to those particular areas for students.

Don’t forget the message board that has been added for you all to leave any views and comments about the various subjects in this site - or you can tell us about yourselves and what you are doing in the world of theatre...

“Theatre is a form of knowledge;
it should and can also be a means of transforming society.
Theatre can help us build a future, rather than just waiting for it.’
- Augusto Boal
‘Just learn your lines and act!’
- The Chris Carney Method
