This will be the second production from FacePlant Theatre, following our successful sell out run at London’s innovative Old Red Lion of our interactive comedy Horror, The Service. Founders, Alice Bounce, Owen Jenkins, Maxwell Tyler and Lydia Hourihan met whilst touring with Olivier nominated Les Enfants Terribles. United in our passion for original storytelling, clowning, and character driven theatre, we set up the company to share this passion, and all our output is written and devised by us.
Alice (MA physical theatre) began her career in clowning, touring Europe in renowned female vaudeville troupe, The Late Night Shop Cabaret. She has performed in shows Alice’s Adventures Underground as a puppeteer, and Dinner With the Twits, both at the Vaults. She is also an associate director, including the recent immersive show Time portal.
Owen graduated from Oxford School of Drama. He has devised and written shows at Pleasance Theatre, and has just finished touring internationally in David Walliams’ First Hippo On The Moon. Other recent credits include award winning 139 Copeland Road and The Games Afoot. He has often performed at The Vaults, most recently in Goosebumps Alive.
Maxwell trained at Drama Studio London, and has an MA in Film & Literature from the University of York. Theatre credits include work with Les Enfants Terribles (Alice’s Adventures Underground, Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie); the National Theatre (King Lear, Man & Superman); and a variety of family shows (The Bear, Adventures in Wonderland). Maxwell has also appeared in EastEnders (BBC) and in seasons 1 & 2 of podcast Wooden Overcoats (Audioscribble).
Lydia recently played the roles of Alice, the March Hare and many others in Alice Adventures Underground at the Vaults. Lydia is excited to be releasing her own TV pilot that she co-wrote, and features in Sunset Dreams a comedy set in a caravan park.
