I do theatre

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:

The Saboteur

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?

Winner: Best Show, New Zealand Improv Fest 2019

“Ingeniously destructive”

— Theatreview

The Museum of This Morning

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.

Winner: Late Night Knife Fight, August 2020

“Extremely impressive”

— Theatreview

“A fascinating show”

— Wellington Reviews

Art Heist

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

Jetpack

I made many of these shows (and many more!) with my company Jetpack Theatre. Visit Jetpack's website here.

Work with me

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.

Luke Nowell Memorial Offer

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.
