In 2013 he was the first actor in 370 years to play the uber-villain Corvino in The Unfortunate Mother by Thomas Nabbes, and was critically described as ‘Polonius on steroids’ which he assumes was well meant.
Keith also directs, and has experience of devising and adaptation.
Kate trained at East 15 Acting School. Having graduated from the 3 year BA Acting course she has been busy with theatre, film and TV work. Her most recent credits include playing the barborous Tamora in Titus Andronicus, playing a very pregnant patient in the new ITV sitcom The Delivery Man, playing the part of Jane – a German Jew in hiding in Sanctuary. Kate likes the opportunity to play as many diverse roles as possible and likes to devise and improvise in rehearsals to find the very core of the character.
Since studying at GSMD Penelope has played may roles in theatre including Hermia (Midsummer Night’s Dream) and Ophelia (Hamlet) for Pinpoint Productions, Nancy (Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens), Brentwood and Fortune Theatre, Mrs Swab (Habeus Corpus) for Full Circle Productions, Mary Queen of Scots (Cochrane Theatre). She has also produced and directed productions including Navy Pier (Brentwood Theatre), Martyr’s Walk (Brentwood Council) and Cathedral Whispers (Chelmsford City Council). Penelope has also appeared in several short films and this year will produce and perform in her first feature film.
George studies English at Queen Mary University of London, ‘studies’ maybe being the wrong word, acting in various unrelated productions and generally having fun maybe being more accurate. He has appeared in many shows in London and Oxford, including Evita, Macbeth, The Browning Version and Titus Andronicus. The zenith of his frivolous revelry on stage came at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, although Doughnut Productions offer a much more solid and earnest platform for exciting and important work, for which he is very grateful.
