Chris has been a familiar face on the Edinburgh stage since moving here from Northern Ireland in 2004. A keen singer, he is usually to be found exploring the lighter world of classic musicals and Gilbert & Sullivan operetta with EDGAS and Cat-Like Tread (CLT), or exploring eclectic repertoire for chamber choir with the St Andrew Camerata.
Chris is delighted to be returning to the 3-T stage, after playing Dick in last year's Elephants. Previous acting roles include Tupolski in Martin McDonagh’s The Pillow Man and a selection of Nazi officers in Martin Sherman’s Bent (2007). Recent engagements (to) include playing Reginald Bunthorne in Patience (CLT, Edinburgh Fringe 2018) and Mark Cohen in Rent (Edinburgh Little Theatre, November 2018).
When not indulging his ego on stage, Chris is a research fellow in Religious Studies at the University of Edinburgh, and enjoys podcasting, exploring Scotland, drinking beer, and repeatedly listening to metal albums he bought when he was 17.
