Lawrence Stubbings is a Professional Actor represented by Pelham Associates.
Larry is currently deep in rehearsals for another proud return to Peterborough's Cresset Theatre (link to Box Office below). The villain once more, this third outing at the Cresset sees him playing the evil Sorcerer Carabosse in 2013's Panto: Beauty and The Beast!
But what a year it's been?!
Having just got back from Nigeria playing Lord Stephen Tomkins in Kunle Afolayan's feature film: October 1, Larry plunged straight into rehearsals for JustJones&'s brand-new adaptation of Ibsen's An Enemy Of The People - in which he played Journalist and Vox Populi: Howard Skinner. Having completed a tremendous tour, in which -
"...the cast all turned in crisp, powerful performances." Bristol Post.
"As newspaperman Howard Skinner, Lawrence Stubbings has the energy of a man with a mission, but a newshound first and foremost..." British Theatre Guide
- he went straight into rehearsals for panto.
His new showreel should be uploaded soon, including footage from the lighthearted online ads for Elastoplast, another great Corporate film with Juice Learning and a glimpse into the near future in the dramatic, Sci-fi Short: Component.
2013 kicked off with Meaning a new work from Voices Of The Holocaust - a powerful and provocative new Theatre Company specialising in Holocaust Education - in which he played The Rabbi.
2012 proved another great year for Larry. :)
December saw him scaring the pants off audiences on his return to The Cresset Theatre, Peterborough, playing King Rat in Premier Pantomime's Dick Whittington And His Cat! (Photos in the Gallery)
The latter months of the year were punctuated with storming and glowering as Emily Bronte's Heathcliff in Looking Glass Theatre's "exceptional" Autumn tour of Wuthering Heights "The performances were as intense as the story - helped in no small part by the malevolent presence of Heathcliff who raged and glowered from scene to suffocating scene...a triumph from start to finish." "...acting so believable you will forget this is a work of fiction... Larry Stubbings' portrayal of the vengeful Heathcliff is perfectly dark and powerful..."
July/August saw Larry in paternal mode; performing as Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music at The Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage (Photos in the Gallery).
May/June included a whirlwind three weeks presenting two excellent, pieces of New Writing: Infinity (One man's journey through the Psychiatric system) and Playtime for the Suicidal: A Musical with the terrific Rotten Park Road Theatre Company.
The early months of the year found him workshopping a fascinating new play (working title: A Do-Gooder) based on Ibsen's An Enemy Of The People - updated to address powerful Environmental issues - with the awe-inspiring Rebecca Manson-Jones and appearing across the BBC in their Shakespeare Unlocked ident playing Iago. He also recorded two corporate films which are currently in Post-production and will be added on here shortly.
Premier Pantomime's Cinderella at The Cresset Theatre, Peterborough playing Dandini.
October/November: the "gentlemanly caddish" Len, in Customs House's new play: Keep Calm and Carry On - in which he gave "...a superb performance as the love him one minute, hate him the next character."
And prior to that, 3 Months touring the UK outdoors (yes, in all that weather!) as Petruchio in Heartbreak Productions' The Taming Of The Shrew. (Read The Stage's review . Watch Heartbreak's promo. )
