Tom comes to Cove Park this June through the Jerwood Performing Arts residencies, programmed by Fuel Theatre. In a new development for 2014, former participants will each nominate emerging artists new to both Cove Park and Fuel to take up this year’s residency opportunities. The nominated artists will work with Fuel either on a specific project, or for the more general development of their creative practice. The residencies will take place in May, June, July and August this year.
Cove Park is most grateful for the continued support of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation for making this work possible.
Tom is a theatre maker and performer, based in London, UK.
Tom has created a diverse collection of work and most recently was invited to be a part of the British Council Showcase at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival with an anarchic adaptation of ‘Don Quijote’, made in collaboration with Keir Cooper and Ultimo Comboio.

Throughout Tom’s work, there is a shared theatrical language that focuses on honesty, action and a playful DIY aesthetic. Whilst at Cove Park, Tom will be collaborating with three other theatre makers, Rachel Mars, Laura Mugridge and Jamie Wood.
