STRUTTING AND FRETTING
An Actor Despairs

Written and performed by Chris McHallem
Directed by Michael James Ford

On the last night of a spectacularly unsuccessful tour of Macbeth, the lead actor sits in his dressing room and muses on the pitfalls of the theatrical life. Balancing his own disappointments with a fervent appreciation of Shakespeare’s genius, he also touches on such topics as the death of Leon Trotsky, the rise of Taylor Swift and the indispensability of stage managers.

Christopher McHallem trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London and now lives in Bray.
He has worked with the RSC and the Royal National Theatre, at The Gate, with Rough Magic and Calypso, with Guna Nua and regularly at the Abbey Theatre.
He spent two and a half years playing the role of Rod Norman in Eastenders, and has also appeared in The Bill, Heartbeat, Paths to Freedom, The Tudors, Striking Out, Vikings and most recently Rebellion 2. His film credits include Edward II, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Breakfast on Pluto, Becoming Jane and Frank.
He appeared in the film Black Velvet Band, for which he also wrote the original script. He wrote the TV film Big Dippers that starred Jimmy Nesbit, and wrote and directed the short film, This Little Piggy that featured Christopher Eccleston and Stephen Brennan.
His radio play Farkham Hall at Christmas was broadcast on RTE at the end on 2015 and he is currently writing a sequel titled, Farkham Hall Over Again.
