I'm Adam - the founder and Company Director of October Boy Productions Ltd. October Boy is a fresh, exciting theatre company which was founded in Leeds in 2013. We specialise in telling stories through original musical theatre that ask our audience to think about the world we live and what it might become. We love to support new writing projects and aim to stage productions of small to large-scale pieces of theatre as well as holding performance workshops and showcases.

We have now staged three productions of our brand new musical, entitled "Scarlett Lane" (written by myself) and took it to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2015. Please do have a look at my portfolio to discover more about the show and read our fantastic feature from The Evening Standard here --http://www.standard.co.uk/goingout/theatre/edinburgh-fringe-2015-scarlett-lane-a2923161.html

My company is growing everyday and alongside writing and developing October Boy projects I work as a workshop facilitator in performing arts, community and health care environments. I am a proud member of the Activ4 team where I set up and run educational and creative sessions for secondary schools on tour across Europe and the US! In the future I hope to help more vulnerable children and adults by working more closely with them as a certified drama therapist.

I am an experienced drama and music tutor and thoroughly enjoy sharing my passion for art and imagination with all of my students. I am motivated by the idea of introducing something new to somebody and helping them to change their perspective or simply have a good time through doing so.

It is also for this reason that I enjoy writing. As well as writing scripts and prose I enjoy performing and recording my original songs. Type my name into Apple Music, Spotify or YouTube to hear some of my performances.

I am currently based in Newport, Shropshire and am now in the beginning stages of recording a demo of my original material to start taking bigger steps in the world of music publishing.
