Founder and Co-Artistic Director

Marcus co-founded Cyphers in 2014 and has been Artistic Director since then. For Cyphers, he has directed production of: Henry V, Great Expectations, The Three Musketeers, Northanger Abbey and Orlando.

 

As a freelance director, Marcus primarily works with new writing. This includes supporting writers and theatre makers to develop their scripts and ideas, as well as directing full productions.
