A BOUNDLESS THEATRE PRODUCTION
Our time will come and all the people will come out into the streets with their fists clenched, their arms and voices raised. You have to be listening. And you have to be ready.
These are the messages. This is the meaning. Be ready. Be listening. And do not be afraid.

Robert is an emerging theatremaker currently suffering the early 20s crisis of graduating (University of Hull), wanting to do everything and not much idea of how. As well as directing and working on plays he is interested in music, spoken word, hating all the bigotry and trying to pay his rent on time. He is currently directing the intersectional feminist fantasia phroot salhad (pronounced fruit salad) on at the Lyric Hammersmith’s Evolution Festival and Camden People’s Theatre’s Hotbed festival.
