2016 was a productive year with three months of it in the USA - January in Florida on R+D, July in Kansas City, directing performances and a new adaptation with USA actors of 'House of Usher' and a return to Florida in Oct/Nov performing three different plays.
And of course the usual UK touring and performances PLUS - sell-out shows in August's #EdFringe, and a blog for FringeReview. You can read the whole bundle via this link:
Now in 2017 -so far- we have the following:

THE SIX-SIDED MAN:
"I do believe I could just sit and watch Gavin Robertson just walk around a room all day.
The actor/playwright is a gifted physical performer, as theatergoers who have seen his previous performances know, but he’s also a formidable playwright -- especially when he allows himself to pursue philosophical questions to their logical conclusions.
“The Six-Sided Man,” his two-character play that can be as challenging as it is entertaining, is a dark, comic meditation on the nature of choice and the question of fate: Is it self-imposed or determined by an imperceptible external force?
Robertson performs the piece with the equally talented Nicholas Collett as part of the Invasion, which runs through Sunday at Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre. Using minimal props -- a desk, a couple of chairs, three door frames -- the actors deliver a showcase of economical acting. These are subtle, nuanced performances that waste no effort.
But Robertson and Collett are also exceptional physical actors. There’s quite a bit of superb movement in this show, but all of it remains subordinate to the story and the themes Robertson wrestles with. Restroom sinks, a copying machine, a cluttered kitchen and other locations are vividly portrayed, even though we “see” them only through our mind’s eye.
This is a unique work that virtually demands a second viewing. And let’s face it: There aren’t many plays you can say that about."

Do please note that none of the above rely on ACE funding in order to tour. We are self-sustaining at present, and can supply full colour print in advance with relatively short get-in/get-out times on the day.
Please don't be afraid to email to initiate a discussion - not all performance venues are the same, and we can't answer every question here. We'll be happy to give more information as you require, whether artistic or technical.
At present we are not able to tour in October 2017 as we have shows in Florida, USA.
