Hi, I'm Sam

I’m a theatre-maker and performer, creating solo performances under the company name of samdoestheatre. I create work which challenges perceived social norms and theatrical conventions, but am also passionate about making my work accessible to all. I’m a big believer in content before form, and use the most effective and evocative staging to convey my ideas across to an audience. can’t stop can’t stop is my first professional devised play. It has recently been selected to perform at the National Student Drama Festival 2018 in Leicester.
