Kerry Kawai

Actor, Director & Co Founder

Kerry Kawai has been acting and directing for 20 years in London, Manchester and Tokyo, Japan.

Her work is a fusion of styles and she cites Stanislavksi and Uta Hagen as influences in her approach to truth on stage.

Having a background in dance and physical theatre Kerry’s work also often employs the techniques of Kabuki theatre, Jaques Le Coq and more recently Viewpoints.

Kerry believes in collaborative work encouraging the actors to offer up ideas within the rehearsal process.


Mark Murphy

Writer, Producer & Co-Founder

Mark is a relatively late arrival to theatre making having previously focused on his day job in industry, as well as home and a growing family.

In 2006 he fulfilled a long-held ambition to study a masters degree in dramatic writing. In 2009 his play, ‘Out of Dead Air’ was performed at the 24:7 Theatre Festival in Manchester. Later that year he joined Incubate Writers on attachment to Bolton Octagon where he gained valuable experience as part of the writing team working on two of the theatre’s Christmas productions.

After Incubate Mark returned to working on new material and teamed up with Kerry in 2015. With many ideas in various stages of development he is delighted to be pursuing his ambitions as part of the creative team in a theatre company and is looking forward to working on new and exciting projects.
