Photo 4 by F Marchal; others by Paddy Gormley

Robin Marchal graduated as an actor from the Webber Douglas Academy in 1973. He believes he has learned a lot, co-running his own company, Value Added Theatre and working elsewhere with such artistes as Renee Asherson, Colin Blakely, Rory Bremner, Genevieve Bujold, Phyllis Calvert, Gerard Depardieu, Barbara Dixon, William Douglas Home, Trevor Eve, Nigel Hawthorne, Bernard Hill, James Mason, Geoffrey Palmer, Christopher Plummer, nthony Sher and John Slater. Though he still acts, his main focus is on play-writing. He has BA Hons (Open) in the Humanities.

Since 1996 role-play/facilitation in the corporate/business world has taken him throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East and the USA.
