Charlie was lead artist on Sometimes Words Get Stuck (2015), a piece of contemporary performance that explored the impact his stutter had on his confidence. He worked with a director, actor and sound artist to create the work which was shared with peers and industry professionals. Charlie worked closely with actor Nicholas Alban to create both dialogue and physical theatre. Sometimes Words Get Stuck was funded by Imaginate Ideas Fund.

Charlie was associate artist on two Creative Electric shows Wonder (2014) and Auditory Hallucinations (2013) where he lead workshops with professional performers on the importance of play.

Charlie has worked with Creative Electric to create visual elements for shows including a short film for Debutantes where he played a young groom and Wasting my Womb (Traverse Theatre Hothouse Season) where he featured alongside other children talking about what makes an adult an adult.

He attends three days of drama and they are the best days of the week. One day he hopes to do drama every day!

Charlie is excited to be starting high school after the summer as his school has a drama department.

Charlie no longer struggles with getting words to come out of his mouth. In fact they flow so fast he sometimes can’t stop them. This is why he loves devising and acting.
