Alex Gwyther is a published writer and actor.

His poetical prose weaves down-to-earth tales of life in Britain to the poignant re-telling of the 1914 Christmas Truce during the First World War.

Gwyther’s unique delivery and “tumbling urbane style” has seen him perform across the country at venues, festivals and events such as Oxford University, the Royal Festival Hall, Latitude Festival and The Mayor of London’s Week of Peace in Trafalgar Square. He has shared stages with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Kate Tempest and Scroobius Pip.

He has been specially commissioned to write for a number of organisations, businesses and charities. His client list includes: BBC Radio 1, The Premier League, Mastercard, Transitions Global, The Southbank Centre, The National Theatre's Deck and The Book People.

His work has been featured on BBC Radio 2, XFM and has toured the UK and parts of Europe.

Gwyther’s first poetry booklet was published on Luke Wright’s Nasty Little Press. He has also been published by Burning Eye, in their 2012 anthology, Rhyming Thunder.
His first solo theatre play, Our Friends, The Enemy was selected as part of New Wimbledon Theatre’s Fresh Ideas season and saw a sell out run in early 2013 and was published by Oberon Books. In 2014 it embarked on two national tours, playing to over 60 venues and over 8,000 people, with special performances in Ypres, Belgium.

In 2015 his solo theatre show Our Friends, The Enemy will transfer to Theatre Row in New York City where it will make its US premiere on 8th December - 20th December.

Alex has recently been commissioned by The Premier League to write a play accompanied by a series of workshops highlighting depression in football players.
