PRODUCER / DIRECTOR
In 2018 I created "Misfits Theatre Group" to help actors like myself, who had not had the opportunity to go to drama school, to gain invaluable on-stage experience. Before the Covid-19 outbreak I produced and directed 2 successful theatre productions. Sadly the company had to close due to Covid-19.
With a cast of 12 actors, and a crew of 3, The Misfits tackled the UK premier of the hilarious adult romantic comedy play about men, women, love, sex, dating, marriage… you know, all the uncomplicated stuff!
Written by the talented American playwright, Rich Orloff, Romantic Fools is made up of self-contained sketches that examine different stereotypes surrounding the opposite sex and the situations that men and women go through to find their 'perfect match' -- from navigating that first date to the frustrations of sex to the surprises that finding even the perfect mate can bring.
Under the direction of Carla Hart (actress and Misfits founder), the play centres around Andrew and Lori and their unconventional journey as they remember their experiences with the opposite sex.
With influences of Monty Python, Saturday Night Live, Jules Feiffer, the Marx Brothers this classic vaudeville comedy, celebrates the inherent comedy of male-female relationships.
Back 2 Skool
A flash back to the nostalgia of school days!
From the trials of not wanting to go to school to having to see your teacher at the weekend, Misfits Theatre Group Ltd entertained with a hilarious and fun filled timetable of poetry and monologues based on a typical day at school.
A truly fun evening to take you right back to your school days with a series of monologues, skits, poems, games, readings and songs stitched together to follow a narrative to transport you through the experience of going to school; from waking up in the morning, assembly and lesson learning to recess, home time and Saturday detention. Packed to the brim with nostalgia from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Shirley Valentine and The Breakfast Club, as well as poems from Tennyson and A.E. Housman with some familiar school hymns and songs thrown in for good measure. We even did Dawn French's Wagon Wheel sketch.
Complete with immersive front of house headmaster and tuckshop lady with her fully functioning tuck shop, the experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
