Having graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2017 with a psychology degree, Tom also performed in various shows for the University, and acts with Sheffield based group Dear Hunter Theatre. After co-founding Colla Voce Theatre, he began directing, starting with Colla Voce Theatre’s sellout production of The Last Five Years, then turned his attention to writing, beginning his collaboration with Cordelia in early 2017. Buried was their first full-length piece of musical theatre, and it received The National Student Drama Festival’s Edinburgh Award, with British Theatre calling his book ‘perversely charming and entertaining’.
Since leaving university, Tom has co-directed two one-man comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe (An Evening With Captain ‘The Butcher’ Reality, Table For One), assisted as a musical director on the Playground Theatre’s The Paradise Circus, and co-founded the annual Redgrave Shakesbeer Festival whilst co-directing it’s opening show, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
You And I is Tom and Cordelia’s newest piece of musical theatre, and their first collaboration with award-winning director Elin Schofield.
