I became a theatre impresario fifty years ago when I persuaded the cashier in my Dad’s legal firm to write me a play inspired by the live canons exploding in Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. I cast the play, took the lead, put out the chairs in my parents back garden and sold the tickets to people in our street. Plus ca change, though my latest solo show (I’ve done seven) MR DARWINS TREE, toured the US in 2016 and fortunately I didn't have to put the chairs out for that one! Producing reached its zenith in collaborating with Justin Butcher in staging his celebrated anti war satire, THE MADNESS OF GEORGE DUBYA in the West End. I have been perilously close to getting ordained once or twice but am now happy in the search for truth, integrity and accessibility in the multiplicity of roles I have been privileged to create (see Spotlight c.v.) in all disciplines for the last 35 years.

“..impressive dexterity between characters...Harrison plays not only himself and Darwin, but almost every person Darwin encounters in the play. His capability to transform into characters and not caricatures must be commended; his emotional manipulation of the audience is outstanding”
