About Us

Dan McGarry has been on the professional stage for almost 20 years and has toured the world with such companies as The Birmingham Stage Company, Heartbreak Productions and more recently Highly Sprung and Talking Birds. Since moving to Northampton in 2014 he has also worked as Associate Lecturer at the University of Northampton, is a Generate Artist at the Royal and Derngate and has established a new writing night in the town, where he mentors and encourages emerging and established writers within the East Midlands. His one man show, Seeking Isolde (and the Lost Land of Lyonesse) will tour the UK from October 2019. In 2018 he was commissioned to write a play, A Bump in The Road, for 15 year olds unsure of their future which was so well received that it was recommissioned for 2019. Also in that year, he helped to create and starred in, 60 Miles By Road or Rail at the Royal and Dengate in Northampton with other Northampton Artists. He continues to be an in-demand voice over and commercial artist, storyteller and facilitator.

Sara Bodinar has written extensively for films, TV, radio and theatre. Her latest feature film Corvid’s Head will be receiving a general release in cinemas in the UK and India this May, while the comedy series she was commissioned to write for Lego has had over 200k views. Working with the Leicestershire-based Urban Young Actors, Sara has had plenty of experience in creating family-targeted theatre. Most recently her play Richard III’s Cyber Horse, another play about climate change, was performed by a cast of 60 (age range 8-21) for 2 nights in Leicester. She has also written a political satire for adults, which is due to tour later in the year with Minty Fresh Productions, following its sell-out London previews. Sara is from Penzance in Cornwall. If Lyonesse were to rise again, she’d see if from the bedroom of her parent’s house.
