COMING UP: 8th November marks the start of the 125th Anniversary Jack the Ripper Conference - and as part of it, Paul will be playing PC Collins in a Site Specific, Promenade performance of THE LONDON JOB. Audience members will be immersed in the world of 1888 Whitechapel, seeing scenes based on the historical characters involved in the case.
JUST BEEN: On 16th-21st September, Paul performed in the LOST SOLES pop-up theatre event on Earlham Street in the West End.

JUST BEEN: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF THE BBC (ABRIDGED) - a two hander featuring Paul as the world's most devoted fan of the BBC and Alix Cavanagh as his long suffering wife - was a SELL OUT at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer! The show ran at Sweet Grassmarket from 12th - 25th August. Check out the Reviews.
RECENTLY: Earlier in the year, Paul worked on the pilot of new comedy: DARK MATTERS. This was shot using muti-camera technique in the TV studios of Westminster University. This comedy follows the lazy but sweet likely lads Mark (Paul) and Alex (Edward Ferrow) who obliviously waste their lives away while the world around them descends into chaos.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Paul could be seen in a fun commercial for HSBC by Academy Award winning director Kevin Macdonald (THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND, TOUCHING THE VOID, ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER). Paul played the hero of this documentary-style advert - a Polish junior manager, completely out of his depth in India, trying to find out why his washing machine sales there are so high! VIEW IT HERE!
