After studying Industrial Economics, Guy took a leap of faith to pursue his dream in theatre. As a director, he leads the creative process from page to stage managing a new team of artists on each project. He deliberately seeks variety and new experiences, and curating the celebrations for the Queen’s 90th Birthday was no exception.

When the pandemic caused theatres to close, Guy worked with the Original Theatre Company creating a new hybrid theatre-film artform. The result was a theatre-film of a new play, The System. Broadcast across the globe, it is the longest, live, steadicam single-take ever. The Upcoming said that The System “Completely revolutionises the industry”.

As a writer, he is a multi-published playwright and specialises in adapting existing titles to a theatre format. Guy’s production of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em is soon to embark on a 3rd tour. The show, written and directed by him, has received an unprecedented 50 four and five star reviews.

As a speaker, Guy uses his experience and stories from the theatre world to talk about:

  • Giving Feedback
  • The importance of danger
  • Invisible but present Leadership
  • The Power of the Ensemble
  • Creating and understanding human character
  • Storytelling in the real world
