More

Charlie is a director and writer. He is Co-Artistic Director of antic | face, recently directing the company's second production For Those Who Cry When They Hear the Foxes Scream, a new play that ran at the Tristan Bates Theatre, Covent Garden throughout June. He also directed the company's first production, Hippolytos, which ran for a sell-out month at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Earlier this year he directed Hamlet at the National Theatre of Nice as part of their Shakespeare festival, after assisting Coky Giedroyc on The Sound of Music (ITV). Hamlet will tour Europe later this year. He directed Nightstand - a short film supported by Stephen Fry and Ian McKellen, now distributed by Peccadillo Pictures - which is currently part of the official selection for various festivals worldwide.

Charlie is currently developing further film work, and his co-adaptation of Lars von Trier's Melancholia for stage - co-written with Max Barton, with whom Charlie also co-wrote a new play Blame, recently workshopped in Bath. He is a member of Young Leaders UK, NYT and the Young Vic Director's Programme, and has worked extensively as an assistant director.

Directing credits while studying include: Measure for Measure (America tour); Ivanov; Sophie Scholl (adapted from the film by Charlie); As You Like It (Edinburgh/London tour); Waiting for Godot; The Priory; King Lear (Europe tour); Arcadia; True West; DNA; Attempts on her Life; The Bald Prima Donna. He has written for the touring monologue series HIV Voices, and has directed for various shorts nights and workshops in London. He has directed two one-night-only musical galas at the Arts Theatre, West End. These have been in collaboration with DENIM - a drag band in which Charlie sings, performs and writes. DENIM is proudly sponsored by MAC Makeup and performed with Florence Welch in their Glastonbury set last year. After a successful run at VAULT FESTIVAL 2016, the troupe just came back from Port Eliot Festival and will be starting their residency at the Crazy Coqs this autumn in collaboration with United Music
