Hi, I'm Mark Stratford and I set up Stratford Productions in 2019 in order to present my solo shows. Currently these are:
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - adapted from the novella of the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson
Macready! Dickens’ Theatrical Friend - the remarkable story of the great Victorian actor-manager, Macready - the man to whom Charles Dickens dedicated 'Nicholas Nickleby'.
Since September 2022 - after a pause over the previous years due to the pandemic - I’ve been touring both shows to various venues and festivals round the UK.
My aim now is to continue to reach more audiences around the UK and beyond. The creation of these shows has been a labour of love for me and I feel passionate about telling these fascinating stories to as many people in different places as I can.
Jekyll and Hyde has great relevance to the modern day with its themes of identity and addiction, while Macready! Dickens’ Theatrical Friend is a little-known story of a man who did so much to influence the theatre of today.”
Please see my Tour Dates page for details of where to find my shows next.
My previous credits as an actor include appearing in West End shows, national and foreign tours, repertory seasons and pantomimes, as well as small parts in Film, TV and Radio.
