This site is an introduction to my work in the theatre and other media
Latest: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight at the O'Reilly Theatre, Keeble College, Oxford, Feb 12th to 15th.
"A fantastically good script by actor/playwright Simon Corble, newly updated from that first performed in 1992. He obviously knows and loves the original poem and his lovingly crafted verse version preserves both the alliteration and the north midlands dialect in places, without ever sacrificing clarity or drama. Truly an inspiring feat, and one that almost moved me to tears by the final quatrain.

My History in Brief
Played Hamlet aged 16 at Lymm Grammar School, Cheshire and never looked back.
Trained as an actor at Manchester Poly. (now MMU) but started to create my own work even then.
Founded Midsommer Actors' Co. in 1990 specifically to create promenade theatre in the most atmospheric natural locations; but with the emphasis on the actor's performance. Won awards and a massive following in the North of England. Started writing for this unique form of theatre.
In addition, I was writing and directing for, amongst others, the likes of The Library Theatre Co. Harrogate Theatre, The London Bubble, Lancaster Duke's Playhouse, North Country Theatre.
Corble taking notes, directing The Hound of the Baskervilles
2001: Took two years out to work on the extraordinary Greek Island of Ikaria as a guide and manager for a small tour company.
Started Found Theatre, with first production in 2005. Powerful stories, simple means.
Concentrating principally on writing at present, with some directing and performance work. (Main photo at top is myself as Montagu Furzan teller of GHOST STORIES.)
Other passions: walking; natural history; wine and food; Greek language ancient and modern (& wine and food); music of many kinds; poetry....wild swimming.
