Rocky Rodriguez

Director London

I've been directing on the fringe for a few years.. honing my craft as well as researching/developing practical acting techniques.

Some pull quotes.
“Creator Rocky Rodriguez Jr has taken an episode of popular cultural history and, with no little theatrical flair, granted it mythical status. What might have been a simple, documentary drama springs to life with a sprightly mix of physical theatre, music and song”- The Stage (On Bed Peace)

“In its no-holds-barred, no-fucks-given approach to ultra-modern storytelling… Craft Theatre’s work here deserves to cause ripples.”- Artibravi (On Nazi Comparison)

“Director Rocky Rodriguez Jr’s revival builds on this absurdist streak, juggling humour and domestic horror to infuse the show with a brash, unsubtle silliness that is undeniably engaging”- The Stage (On God of Hell)

"Real gusto and slick delivery ...Craft Theatre is certainly an accomplished ensemble.”- A Younger Theatre (On Dante’s Inferno)

“Theatre rarely feels this essential and this vital”- Greg Wetherall (On Dantes Inferno)
“The space almost feels spiritual”- Time Out (On A Question of Consent)
