Teaching and acting in Cambridge
Richard has worked as actor, director, teacher and writer since co-founding in situ: in 2000.
Born in London in 1959, Richard's passion for performance grew from watching his parents, Alice and George, performing with the Tower Theatre Company.
Having acted and directed at university in Cambridge, on graduating in 1980, Richard co-founded Cambridge Experimental Theatre to create more immediate, physical and dynamic work than most conventional theatre. Cambridge Experimental Theatre toured extensively throughout Britain and Europe, performing a mix of new work and classics, especially Shakespeare.
Richard was Artistic Director of Cambridge Experimental Theatre from 1980 until 2000, when he founded in situ: with Bella Stewart and Pete Arnold.
Co-founder Bella Stewart is a former member of Cambridge Experimental Theatre and the director of in situ:'s experimental performances Made On Another Day, Wild, The Calendar Project and the ghost in me.
Maxine is a leading in situ: collaborator who has appeared in The Cherry Orchard, Oedipus Rex, King Lear, The Winter's Tale, Ratman: A Case Of Obsessive Neurosis, Made On Another Day, , The Calendar Project, Wild, unnamed, Three Sisters and Woyzeck.
Poisoned by TV and Toddlers, I escaped to the theatre and was blown away by an in situ: production of Macbeth.
Alive again I managed to infiltrate the company as a groupie and love everything they do. Having an unquenchable thirst for the shows my favourite role is front of house where I can welcome and enthuse with those new and old to the company.
Melting the boundaries between actor and audience provides a magical escape during a performance, whether you’re in a House or in the Woods. Scripted works always offer extra dimensions to the observer and devised pieces allow easy access to fresh and exciting art forms.
Meaningful and moving, the thrill of an in situ: show never abates...
Susan has acted with insitu: since 2008, including performances of King Lear, The Calendar Project, Hamlet, Be Absolute For Death and most recently, The Master Builder.
"I love the unique, exerimental nature of insitu: productions, and in particular our welcoming approach where everyone is valued, whether new to or experienced in acting; there are no divas!"
A relationship expert who works as an advice columnist, writer, broadcaster, trainer and coach, Susan researches and writes articles for in situ:'s website.
John has collaborated in a number of in situ productions since 2009, including Frankenstein, Canterbury Tales, Decameron, Oresteia, Three Sisters, The Odyssey and The Master Builder Project.
A now mostly-retired teacher, he is also a committee member of a voluntary arts
organisation in his local community.
