Actor and Londoner.
These pieces exhibit fragments of the voices and identities
that live within me, as a product of the Commonwealth diaspora.
Thanks to our new reality of isolation, this writing is also a feast of introspection!
My Mum Says
Miss Illobi knows
Actor and Irish Londoner
This piece has evolved out of my upbringing on Irish folklore, myths and legends. It explores the
importance of story-telling around the world. It poses questions about authorship, looking at how the
origins of stories are not known to communities for whom they are significant. It also reflects on the
competency of language to tell such stories.
They Belong to Us
A loud American hailing from New York City where
restaurants are dead but art is not.
For my classmates, myself & acting students everywhere.

Actor, Fight Director & New Englander
This is a morphasion of my entire career to date in a form which I had never expected.

philosophy, psychology, and relationships.

using Ezekiel 3:3 and 37, an inter(in)animate enactment is an inter(in)animation (see: Rebecca Schneider's Performing Remains) of this moment in time (April 2020).
A return of (in)discrete bodies of apparent beginnings and endings of events that have and have not come to pass.
between has been and future, between the words, writing shows what the clock does not show.
an inter(in)animate enactment re-visions the parts of the theatre that give us back the living parts of the dead or the mortal parts of life with the belief that they need to be re-animated in the hearts of our time.
one must manage to live in one's house, inside one's time...
there in this place, we stop, we return to our time, it is here, we live in it, it lives in us.

British Actor & Perpetually Sleeping Young Man
After spending a decade working in the hospitality industry, my experiences
have inspired me to create a piece that hopefully demonstrates the frustrations
that arise through having to make a living from a job you don’t love,
while also shining a light on the negative impact
it might have on a person’s mental health.
A Day At Work With Me
Young African American Actor, playwright and a songwriter apparently.
A young black man battles his own mind in the only ways he knows how, while resisting
the urge to close in on himself. The achievements of his people, their unwilting perseverance,
compounded by a childhood lacking exposure to the black people of today; all of this weighs
on the mind of this young man. The only way to carry the burden is to lift himself as well.
The Black Man Speaks

How It Started: me reflecting on my romantic relationship since
I’ve been stuck in the apartment with my boyfriend for 6 straight weeks...
Caymanian. Costa Rican. Other. Mother of one. Daughter of many.
Alive in nature, drawn to the celestial. Creating in the realm of the remembered
and the forgotten, conscious of residue.

British actor, dabbler with writing.
An exploration into Tom’s connection to the cinematic form of storytelling.
