MATT TURPIN

Co-founder of George Lassos the Moon and director of our first production, 'The Birds'.

Matt also appeared as 'Michael' in 'God of Carnage' and continues to battle his love of acting with his (absolute need to be in complete control!) passion for directing.

 

Matt has been involved in theatre for approximately 10 years, learning his craft mainly through his local theatre, The Stables in Hastings with whom he continues to support. His love for black and white films, James Stewart, and all things sentimental inspired the naming of the company from his favourite film, 'It's a Wonderful Life'. Matt's most treasured character is Elwood P Dowd in Mary Chase's 'Harvey' which he had the priveledge to perform in 2013.

 

However Matt's taste in theatre tends to side with the modern, edgy to post-apocolyptic with his favourite playwrights including Conor McPherson and Tracy Letts. Matt is also fond of writing about himself in the third person.
