'I first worked with Ryan a year ago when he was Assistant Director on a production of 'Twelfth Night' I was directing. I found him to be a commited, creative and professional presence and he made a fantastic contribution to the creative team. I was able to rely on his support and collaborate with him in a way that aided the shows development. Ryan is able to draw on a wide knowledge of theatre in theory and workshop practice and apply them with passion and enthusiam. We have subsequently worked together delivering workshops and developing shows for Theatre Royal Plymouth and others. He has many exercises and approaches at his finger tips and is confident and professional in workshop settings with a wide range of participants. '
