David Sedgwick

Liverpool reviewer

I’m a university lecturer and sometime actor/director with an addiction to live performance. Theatre has been my world for as long as I can remember and I hope it will always continue to be so.  In my spare time – when I get some – I like cycling in the great British outdoors and also indulge in wild camping, the wilder the better. My ambition is to cycle around the world then write a witty play about all the weird and wonderful experiences. Who knows maybe one day I’ll be reviewing my own play. Objectivity assured, naturally!
