About this Event

“Reality interests me in so far as as it is something which can be represented and used as an element to build a fiction" Pedro Almodovar

Join the Artistic Director of Told by an Idiot as he is challenged, provoked, and put on the spot by himself. Watch as he rants, rails, and generally flails about as he looks back on 27 years of the Idiots and reflects on their shows and working process.

Paul Hunter is a British actor and Director who trained at Middlesex Polytechnic where he met Hayley Carmichael and John Wright, with whom he formed Told by an Idiot in 1993. For the past twenty seven years their work has been seen from Coventry to Caracas, from Bradford to Beijing. Paul has been involved in all of it, including On The Verge Of Exploding and The Strange Tale Of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel both of which featured at LIMF.

Other theatre includes Wise Children (Old Vic), The Life Of Galileo (Young Vic) and The Play What I Wrote (West End). Directing includes: The Mouse and His Child (RSC), Senora Carras Rifles (Young Vic) and Every Last Trick (Spymonkey).
