Jack Burrows

I am an Ashfield based theatre maker who has created a range of work over the last 18 years. Most recently I’ve been involved in writing and directing the ATTFE Community pantomime at Sutton Academy, where I also run the Centre Stage Academy Youth Theatre. I also work for Education at Mansfield Palace, delivering workshops, youth theatre and community projects. I’m currently collecting memories and thoughts of the people of Ashfield to create a community play to be performed in 2022.  Previous plays include Suddenly and Dreadful Objects so Familiar.  Acting roles have included Malvolio in Twelfth Night, Rooster Byron in Jerusalem and Lennie in Of Mice and Men. @Buzville

Tia Elvidge

I’m a performer, facilitator and director and I’m Ashfield born and bred, the only time I’ve ever left was when I went to uni to study Community Drama! I love working with community groups to tell all sorts of stories. I’ve a really big interest in masked theatre, clowning and Commedia dell’arte, so I’m currently growing my collection of masks and noses! @tiaelvidge
