New Play-Live Online Theatre, this Sunday!

No sooner had I started my MOCKDOWN! Sunday Livestream Podcasts, when I had to take a break last Sunday and this. But I’m delighted with the reason why… I’ve been in rehearsals.

This Sunday at 6pm (UK), I’m acting in a lovely online performance of a new play, SOUVENIR, by Matt Gurr, produced by UP ‘ERE PRODUCTIONS

It’s a lovely play – and I have the amazing role of Iain. Here’s the synopsis…

“For the last 40 years, Iain and his closest friend Kit have taken secret weekend trips from Scotland to Soho to experience what life as out gay men could be like. Now aged 60, and in the wake of Kit’s death, Iain takes that trip alone for the first time and finds himself reliving old memories over one night that will change his life forever”

With Jay Olpin, Gregor Duncan, Sandy Jack & Yours Truly
Directed by John O’Neill and Jordi Williams.

On Stage and Screen

Hi folks! November already!
Time flies….


Been a busy few weeks. This past weekend I was on stage at York Theatre Royal in the TakeOver Festival with the lovely short play, THE SYLVIA SWING, written by Melanie Hopkins. If you’d like to see it, the video is below…

In October, I returned as Undertaker Albert Holdings in the play TRUMPET, based on the novel by Jackie Kay. Directed by Amanda Huxtable and produced by Shirley Harris at Vanitas Arts.

We had an R&D session on TRUMPET earlier in the year. The latest session was Digital Testing; adding the multimedia layers that bring the show to life. Plans are for a full production next year.


Coming up on November 25th in your living room – I will be in DOCTORS on BBC1. Smashing part I filmed a couple of months ago. I can’t wait to see it 🙂

So kids, that’s it for this update, stay warm and safe, vote wisely, VOTE LABOUR, and I’ll be back soon
