Partner After studying History at Balliol College, Oxford, Timothy trained as an actor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He works extensively as an actor. Recent work includes appearances in Therese Raquin at the National Theatre, the title role in Richard III at Guildford, as well as work for the Oxford Playhouse, Shakespeare’s Globe and Manchester Library Theatre. His television work includes starring in the BBC’s comedy Detectorists written by Mackenzie Crook. He also founded Behind The Eye Theatre which produced Moira Buffini’s Blavatsky’s Tower at Barons Court. His work on gender which found practical expression through Turn of Phrase grew out of recording interviews of women’s experiences in theatre for a sound archive in conjunction with studying the work of figures such as bel hooks and Judith Butler. Tim also works as a director and producer having directed and created pieces for the Southwark Playhouse, Vault Festival and Baron’s Court. He has run workshops and worked as a teacher for several years. In addition he completed an MA in Creative Fiction under Andrew Motion at Royal Holloway and works as a freelance writer.
