Currently playing SHERE KHAN (and Monkey!) in JW productions ‘THE JUNGLE BOOK’ at the BRIGHTON OPEN AIR THEATRE from May 29th – June 2nd.
I’m thrilled to have been nominated for BEST MALE PERFORMANCE IN A MUSICAL for my portrayal of BERNADETTE in PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT.
BAFTA AWARD 2018 – winning in the Multiplayer Game Category – BEST NARRATIVE.
I have now voiced two of the major baddies BRACCHUS REX & MAGISTER REIMOND.
Mark Inscoe oozes charm from every pore as WB Taylor managing that perfect blend of smarmy faux sophistication and wily predator with consummate ease.
Like Singin’ in the Rain (which Church directed here and in the West End) Mack and Mabel is poised at the birth of the talkies in Hollywood, and a decisive lurch towards more “psychological” acting, represented by Mark Inscoe‘s dapper and persuasive William Desmond Taylor, tugging Mabel out of her comfort zone. Other enjoyable references are made to movie legends Frank Capra (Gunnar Cauthery) and Fatty Arbuckle (Jack Edwards), who, like Desmond Taylor, was later embroiled in scandal and murder.
Mark Inscoe’s William Desmond Taylor is an elegantly competitive cad to Sennett, whilst Jack Edwards’ Fatty (Arbuckle) similarly adds a convincing layer.
