Mark – Founder of Murder Mystery Events
Aside from Murder Mystery Events, Mark has worked on many projects as director, writer, performer, creative consultant and producer.
After training at Webber Douglas Drama School he graduated having performed in many theatres in repertory seasons, Shakespeare and of course murder mysteries.
Mark’s real professional interest in the ‘whodunit’ and the spellbinding effect it had on audiences was in arguably the world’s most famous play – the West End production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. Mark has been a cast member twice – playing Christopher Wren and more recently playing Guiles Ralston. Mark also added to his comedy credentials by working for the National Theatre in the original production of the much acclaimed One Man Two Guvnors.
Mark performs regularly as MC for the cult Singalong version of ‘The Sound of Music’ which is tours the world along with the other shows on which I worked as creative consultant and MC; Singalong Joseph, Singalong Wizard of Oz, Singalong Annie, Singalong Rocky Horror and the new shows Singalong Hairspray and Singalong Grease.
Involvement in these areas has got Mark into various interesting situations and TV radio and newspaper approaches have followed. These have ranged from guests spots on ‘ITV’s This Morning’ with Philip and Fern’ as well as ‘Channel 4 Richard and Judy show. Most recently he was profiled on the BBC news channel and BBC Breakfast talking about his various theatrical endeavours.
Murder Mystery Events celebrated 15 years of activity in 2015 and performs between 160 / 200 events per year at venues across the UK. It is probably the largest and best respected operator in this field.
