'AndOn Theatre creates work that clings to our roots and draws on the ultimate inspiration; over two decades of shared memories and a life well lived (...so far!) We strive to make it real and keep it simple, and spark story from the raw and the irrefutably interesting.
Epitomising energy and dynamism, we push ourselves beyond our daring imagination and truthful stimuli to performances that are poignant, honest and draw a refreshing smile.

As Ray's younger cousin, the two have spent years working (well, larking about!) together, and consequently have a wonderfully enjoyable and in-sync process.
Starting out as a young actor Ray was fortunate enough to have gained experience on the West End Stage in the original cast of The Beautiful Game, and in TV and film (including Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Jason Bourne), which was ultimately an incredible influence and inspiration to continue performing. Having graduated from the University of Chichester in 2007 with a BA in Performing Arts, Ray went on to work with UK based collective Bootworks Theatre as a performer, workshop leader, and assistant director. Assisting in the creative process of three different Bootworks shows (Une Boite Andalouse, The Good, the Bad and the Box and Little Box of Horrors). The company performed in festivals and venues around the UK including the BAC, Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe as well as internationally. Ray also co-created and produced a show as part of another theatre collective; OvaPlay, based in London, that performed the entire Edinburgh Fringe run in 2008. Since then, Ray has been involved in teaching, freelance performing and directing in a variety of different projects.
Being the older cousin, Ray has been able to watch Joshua grow to become a talented writer and performer that he is extremely proud of. He is now very excited to be invested in the joint venture of ‘AndOn Theatre.
