Your Background?
BA Acting Central School of Speech and Drama, Ph.D. in Drama Trinity College Dublin, actor and director (worked with Wooster Group in NY and trained with SITI Company and Anne Bogart)

How did you get involved with Skin Tight?
I met Jemma Gross at the Lincoln Center Directors Lab in NY. Have felt very privileged to help out with this amazing and special production.

Favourite memory of rehearsals/show/tour from last year?
Rehearsing in Jemma’s mother’s house with the beautiful back garden and under-reading for both actors which at times was like doing mental aerobics. –Also being asked to be the internal feelings of Angela Bull, great times.

What are you up to at the moment?
I am directing Ross Ericson’s new play, Life, for the Edinburgh Festival.

Tom and Elizabeth share a lot of their own memories in the play what’s your favourite childhood memory?

My favourite memory is going to Bedford, Virginia with my sister and mom in the summers I was growing up. We would drive all night to get there and our two great aunts would be waiting up for us on the porch sitting in their rocking chairs. Felt so great going from Chicago to small town Virginia where people would do that.
