David Thackeray

Actor / Director

“Direction from David Thackeray is tight and imaginative”



My Life as an Actor

I trained as an Actor for 5 years, graduating from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in BA Acting –  Collaborative Devised Theatre. The course is in creative partnership with the international touring theatre company Complicite. Since graduating I have acted in several productions, including Channel 4 Humans and a commercial for a major new video game, the Caucasian Chalk Circle at the Greenwich Theatre, and I have recently finished performing in ‘Fool for Love’ by Sam Shepard at the Courtyard Theatre.

My Life as a Director

My work as a Director and Collaborator has previously been nominated for the NSDF Award and the MTN Awards. Since graduating, I have become heavily involved in directing numerous theatre productions. Given that I have the training as an actor, I believe that it gives me a good grounding and understanding of the actors process within the rehearsal space – something which is incredibly beneficial.

“David Thackeray brought together a beautiful combination of music, movement and puppetry, capturing the essence of childhood imagination.
