I am an Executive Director and Co-Founder of The Bread & Roses Theatre in Clapham (South London, UK), an award-winning and innovative fringe pub theatre. I co-founded The Bread & Roses Theatre Company (BRTC) in summer 2012, which had its home in the upstairs function room at The Bread & Roses Pub. Together with current managing director Rebecca Pryle as well as the support from the pub, I helped develop the space into a theatre which launched in November 2014. From September 2014 to March 2018 I also served as the theatre's Artistic Director before stepping down in order to move to Berlin.
The Bread & Roses Theatre is a 40- to 60-seat fringe venue above The Bread & Roses Pub which programs a wide-spread variety of productions for local as well as far-reaching audiences. Artistic quality, equality and diversity are at the forefront of the theatre's programming, which features visiting companies as well as in-house productions, with a focus on new writing, underrepresented voices and distinctive work. The theatre has worked with award-winning ensembles with decades of experience but also frequently welcomes emerging companies taking their first steps and supports theatre-makers by providing box office split deals with no hidden fees. The programme includes new writing, contemporary revivals, reinvented classics and occasionally also devised work, improvisational theatre, comedy events, family shows and physical theatre.
