As artistic director of an emerging theatre company, Flintlock Theatre, I have come to depend on a range of skills, developing several complimentary areas of theatre practice to a high level. Having trained at a drama school, freelanced as both actor and musician for 8 years, qualified as a stage combat teacher and founded a theatre company, my professional life has become a somewhat 'portfolio' career.
"Flintlock are a company to look out for. We're very glad to have them as new professional theatre makers on our Oxford doorstep" Michelle Walker - Producer, Oxford Playhouse
Flintlock Theatre is an emerging theatre company, currently in residence at Oxford Playhouse. The company was founded in 2012 by Robin Colyer and Anna Glynn. Both experienced actors, we wanted to create a truly collaborative company prioritising ensemble working and making intensely theatrical, exciting performances with a regular company of associate artists.
Becoming Evolve Artists in Residence at Oxford Playhouse marks an exciting new chapter for Flintlock. With Playhouse support, we will continue to develop work characterized by distinctive, high-energy storytelling through actor-led devising.
