What do you like best about playing your character in Alice in Wonderland?

My favourite thing about playing Tweedledum is getting to let my imagination and child-like side to run free. And I get to do it with a good friend which makes being part of a duo even easier.

What are rehearsals like?

Rehearsals are a lot of fun. They are tiring because ‘Alice’ is a very physical show, but it’s a good work-out.

What was the last project you worked on?

My last project was the first show of my new company. ‘Father for Justice’ and ‘Dearly Departed ‘, a double bill of immersive theatre.

Besides Alice, what’s your favourite past role?

My favourite role was playing The Marquis De Sade in ‘Quills’. It was great playing someone so confident and articulate.

What’s the best play/show/concert you’ve ever been to?

The best show is any time I get to see Amanda Palmer live. She always gives a performance that makes me feel a part of it.

Not a lot of people know that…

Not a lot of people know that… When you order crispy seaweed from a Chinese restaurant it’s not seaweed, it’s Cabbage.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is… my love of 90s pop music.

What really grinds your gears?

Self-entitled people
