Tom Crowley

Writer, actor, director, and the rest.

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I'm a writer, actor, director, comedian and a few other things. I'm a graduate of the Royal Court Young Writers Programme and the King's Head Trainee Director Scheme. I'm best known as a series writer and performer in the Prix Europa-nominated podcast sitcom Wooden Overcoats (available now on all podcast platforms), and as the playwright behind the stage adaptation of the Rocky Horror sequel, Shock Treatment (King's Head, 2015).

My other writing credits include a number of stage comedies for children at Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells as well as Cartoon Network's BAFTA-winning The Amazing World of Gumball and BBC Radio Comedy's Four Sad Faces, The Now Show and The News Quiz.

I'm the founder and Artistic Director of Crowley & Co., a creative production company. Under that banner, I've produced and directed my own play Ghost City (Festival Spirit Award nominee, VAULT Festival 2015), a two-week takeover at VAULT 2016 entitled The Locker (featuring world premières of new writing by David K. Barnes, Felix Trench, Simon Blake and Cordelia Lynn), Felix Trench's Radioman (Old Red Lion, 2016), Molly Beth Morossa's Greywing House (London Horror Festival, VAULT 2017) and a regular variety show, The Night at Brasserie Zédel.
