Bev Clark

Bev Clark is a writer, director, producer and drama facilitator who lives on Wirral, Merseyside

She has worked in the creative industries for most of her career, mainly as a youth theatre director working in theatres in Bristol, Essex and the North West.

In 2011 she was received by her Majesty the Queen for her work with young people in the Arts.

Bev is an adjudicator with The Guild of Drama Adjudicators (GoDA) and has written and directed youth and community pieces for many groups and organisations. As a facilitator she has worked for Noda running a devised theatre course and directed a new piece of work Invisible Chains as part of Theatrefest 15 on the Isle of Man.

Until recently she was Artistic Director of the award-winning community group Hand in Hand Theatre. They were part of RSC Openstages on three occasions and performed at the RSC Stratford.

Her drama -The Black Eyes won the Roister Doister International one act play for young people competition in 2015. A gripping horror story which uses elements of physical theatre. This went on to win Best youth production in the Warwickshire One Act Festival.

Previously, her play Remembrance Day won the Leverhulme Festival in 2009 and was a runner-up in The Geoffrey Whitworth Playwriting Competition. The production went through to the semi-finals of AETF and the All Winners NDFA. Subsequent performances have been produced in Suffolk, Cambridge and Dorset in 2014.

Bentley: Road to Justice: a docudrama ensemble piece written for the Leverhulme festival – this also won through to the semi-finals and again was a runner up in the Geoffrey Whitworth Playwriting competition 2011.  Many schools have bought copies of the script to use as part of their study aids to the story of Derek Bentley.

In 2012, Bev wrote a modern sequel After the Dream for the first RSC OPENSTAGES. This toured the North West and was performed at Contact Theatre Manchester and described by one review as “when Ayckbourn meets Shakespeare”. This twist on the tale of A Midsummer Night’s dream saw the lovers celebrating their 20th anniversaries when suddenly an old spell is reversed with a hilarious and somewhat tragic outcome.

In 2016 Bev teamed up with fellow actor/writer Keith Hill to bring R.I.P. Mr Shakespeare to the festival circuit. Winning many trophies through to the AETF and NDFA Finals and receiving 5 star reviews for the final performances at St George’s Hall Liverpool. This has since been produced on the Isle of Man and Chelmsford in Essex

In summer 2017 Baggage was previewed to great reviews and went on to tour the North West in January 2018 together with another two-hander S.P.A.C.E.  Also in 2017 the premiere of The Ghost Cribwas performed a community group in Widnes.
