Theatre was my first love. I'm endlessly fascinated by the possibilities of what can be created in the space between an actor and the audience. Here are some of the shows that I've worked on recently:
An immersive, interactive murder mystery set and performed on a luxury superyacht, retelling one of the most infamous and glamorous scandals in Hollywood history.
“A unique and unforgettable night of immersive theatre”— Keeping Up With NZ
Five performers are all working hard to put on a good improv show. Well, almost all of them. One of them is trying to sabotage the show without getting caught. Will The Saboteur be unmasked before the evening is ruined?

“Ingeniously destructive”— Theatreview
“Delightfully fun and wonderfully unpredictable”— Wellingtonista
An interactive solo show, where I interview audience members about the things that they did on the day of the show, then weave those stories together into an on-stage exhibition that spans thousands of years.

“Extremely impressive”— Theatreview
“A fascinating show”— Wellington Reviews
A thrilling, immersive, escape-room style adventure. You and three friends have an hour to steal a painting from a purpose-built gallery, all the while avoiding cameras, fooling alarm systems, distracting guards, sneaking through vents, and avoiding lasers.
Art Heist sold out a four-month run in Sydney in 2017.
“Bespoke, immersive theatre of the highest calibre”— Sydney Arts Guide
I made many of these shows (and many more!) with my company Jetpack Theatre. Visit Jetpack's website here.
I love teaching, collaborating on and speaking about theatre, especially improvised, interactive, immersive and
innovative kinds. Find out more about what I can do for you.
My friend Luke made brilliant, open-hearted, weird theatre. He also passed away far, far too young.
To honour his memory, I offer free support for theatre shows that are bizarre, physical, tender, comedic, or some combination of these. If you have an idea for a show like that and you want advice or feedback, please let me know.
I can't guarantee I'll have all the answers, but I'll give you what I can, and together we can fill the world with the shows Luke would have liked.
