Mark Knightley

Actor and Artistic Director of Brave Badger Theatre

  • Location: London
  • Freelancer: Available


I am an actor and theatre maker. In 2007 I co-founded Third Man Theatre and in 2011 I moved onto Brave Badger Theatre. We make innovative, new theatre like The Heart of Adrian Lovett which ran for three weeks at Theatre Delicatessen around the 2015 election. Adrian explored the privatisation of the NHS and used immersive and forum techniques.

We are currently working on The Listening Room which will play at Portsmouth New Theatre Royal in the autumn. The show is a verbatim piece which, through the stories of real people who have been through a restorative justice programme, explores heroic and individual reactions to trauma. We are currently looking at further development opportunites for the piece and partner venues.

 As an actor I've worked for the BBC, Horrible Histories, Pilot Theatre, Theatre Clywd, Eastern Angles, amongst others. I love classical work and devising in particular.
