Audio Interviews (Soundcloud)

I have conducted multiple interviews, mainly during my time as Head of Speech and Drama (2016-17) at the University of Manchester’s Fuse FM Student Radio Station. Here are some samples of some interviews:

(‘Eric and the Barbarian’ Interview was nominated for ‘Best Interview’ at UoM’s Societies and Media Awards 2017).

[ON HIATUS] Untold Stories (video project)

A project in which I interview random people about their stories and experiences in the world. The project is currently undergoing a hiatus due to a lack of recording equipment. Here are some samples:

The Fronts (2017 | Writer/Producer)

The Fronts PosterA play I wrote and produced with UoM Drama Society’s event Two Pairs of Shorts. Directed by Jess Wiehler.

SYNOPSIS: A British couple, the Fronts, move to Louisiana, USA to lead a new life. Both suffer from alexithymia, a condition that means they have no emotions. The play turns into a comedy-of-manners as the couple’s neighbours, the Donovans, misinterpret an affair going on. The play does not make light of the Fronts’ condition, rather makes social commentary on how we all put up a front in life.

Returning (2017 | Assistant Director)

Returning PosterAnother UoM Drama Society production. I took an assistant director role as part of the 2017 Autumn Showcase Season. Directed by Kat Humphrey and written by Jade Fox.

SYNOPSIS: When you’ve been a world away, coming home isn’t as easy as it sounds. Jo and Michael have been living a life of rules, strategy and explosive situations. These two service people have negotiated the ins and outs of the British army. But finding a way to thrive in London proves their most difficult challenge yet.

The Log (2018 | Actor)

the logIndependent theatre production acting as narrator Charlie. Written and directed by Patrick Davenport.

SYNOPSIS: The Log is a warm and light-hearted coming of age play about three children who meet every year at a holiday park. The play documents the meetings between the three children from when they are 6 years old, all the way to adulthood. The Log examines friendship, and how it be can be strained and tested through the rigours of growing up.

The Log will be touring to Berwick this summer.

The Anatomy of a Bath Mat (2018 | Director/Writer)

Optimized-bath-mat-poster-HDA play I wrote and directed as part of UoM Drama Society’s MIFTA season.

SYNOPSIS: Elliot, a writer for a new soap drama, should be on the verge of something great, but a new opportunity from the eccentric Alessandra gives Elliot an escape, but also an overwhelming sense of fear. Honestly, she’d rather just write about bath mats.

Blind Faith (2017 | short documentary)

A short documentary film by Lily McGinn on football fans where I play a small part. Lily and I have had the pleasure of working together on an audio feature about sex workers in the UK (Alice Down the Rabbit Hole), which we are currently trying to make public as soon as we get media release forms from interviewees.
