Christopher Hawes

Artistic Director Slingshot Theatre / Freelance Actor, Writer & Practitioner

  • Location: Woking
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I am the Artistic Director of Slingshot Theatre, creating and producing professional theatre on an international level. I have over 10 years of experience in the theatre industry, performing, writing and producing memorable live comic theatre.

My first full length play 'Nativity in Creakebottom' has received two national tours playing at 35 venues to over 3000 people. The Stage called it "face-hurtingly funny". Which was nice. FYI my pen-name is Christopher Dennis, careful not to mix us two up, we're rarely seen together though always in the same place.

I'm also a renowned theatre practitioner with a humourous and authoritative teaching style, and have an established reputation as an expert in Commedia dell' Arte and indeed comic acting across all theatre genres.
