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.
Richard attended Learn To Act I and II in 2005, before playing Oedipus in Oedipus Rex, Polixenes in The Winter's Tale and Trofimov in the 2010 revival of The Cherry Orchard. He recently participated in the ghost in me.
Richard is an IT strategy consultant who founded the graphic design agency Cambridge Infographic and manages in situ:'s web site and on-line presence.
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...
Having made tentative enquiries in 2002, Cyrus completed Learn To Act I and II in 2005 where he enjoyed the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere where everyone is equal. He has gone on to appear in Oedipus Rex, Ratman: a case of Obsessional Neurosis, King Lear, Made on Another Day, Wild, The Calendar Project and the ghost in me.
A journalist and sub-editor, Cyrus coordinates in situ:’s press and publicity and designs publicity posters and the programmes available at performances.
Susan has acted with insitu: since 2008, including performances of King Lear, The Calendar Project, Hamlet, Be Absolute For Death and most recently, Woyzeck.
"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.
