ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Marco Gambino has lived in London for over twenty years. His theatrical debut took place in Palermo with Gruppo Teatro Novecento, but it was in London that he developed his technique, attending courses at the Actor’s centre and Webber Douglas. Soon after that he began to actively work in the theatre.
Marco has worked with various international directors and filmmakers including Tony Maylam (The Journal of a Contract Killer), Tom Tyckwer (The International) and Giacomo Campiotti (Mai più come prima, La guerra sulle Montagne, Giuseppe Moscati). His appearances on Italian television include Il Capo dei Capi and Squadra Antimafia.
His parallel activity as an author has seen Marco developing together with Ernesto Tomasini, Camurria, a one act play wich opened at Riverside Studio, London, in June 2008.
Amongst his other theatrical project, Words of Honour (aka Parole d’onore) , is the result of a collaboration with award winning journalist Attilio Bolzoni. The play had its world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2009 and subsequently opened at the Jermyn Street Theatre in London. Gruppo Ambra produced the italian version of the play which, always under the direction of Manuela Ruggiero, was staged at the Piccolo Eliseo in Rome in November 2009 and has been touring ever since.
“Interview to the Marchesa” saw Marco play next to awarded actress Milena Vukotic. The play was commissioned to Paolo Puppa by the International Arts Festival of Capri in 2010.
Marco has recently worked with playwright Roberto Cavosi by doing a number of readings of his plays and they are currently developing a new project together. Their most recent play is the monologue from William Shakespeare "Othello's Guilt" performed in the Greek theatre of Segesta (Sicily) and at the Rose Theatre in London.
