PRODUCER & THEATRE-MAKER

Since 2008, Christopher has been writing, developing and producing new work

He was done so independently, in association with other theatre makers, as part of other companies (most notably Dawn State),  and increasingly under the umbrella of his own company Wooden Hill

WOODEN HILL

Wooden Hill creates theatre that has at its core a deep challenge to dominant ideas and conventions. If the institutions we depend on are all man-made, and what they represent merely the products of our imagination, how can we – and should we – be so sure of the heights we think we have reached?

At Her Majesty’s Pleasure (working title)

A piece formed from testimonies, diaries and statements of inmates of HMP Holloway – Britain’s infamous women’s prison – exploring dissent, revolution and subjugation
