Theatre roles have included playing Malcolm in Declan Donnellan's Macbeth, which toured several countries, The Madness of George III, and The Duchess of Malfi, and most recently in the Cheek By Jowl production 'Tis a Pity She's A Whore, which finished its Los Angeles run after a tour in Britain and Europe.
