Jack is co-founder of Glasgow based theatre company Wonder Fools.
Formed in 2014, Wonder Fools strive to make evocative and
exhilarating contemporary theatre in all kinds of settings for all sorts of audiences.
Established in 2014: Wonder Fools seek unknown and forgotten stories lost in the evolving social landscape of modern Britain that we are able to reshape and make theatre from.
Wonder Fools are a registered Scottish Charity No. SC047673.
Our charitable purpose is to advance the arts and culture within Scotland and beyond.
We strive to create evocative and exhilarating contemporary theatre and performance, in both conventional and out of the ordinary settings.
We seek to make accessible, energetic and engaging work which appeals to both traditional as well as non-traditional audiences. We aim to push the fold of who contemporary theatre and performance can attract and appeal to.
We are fascinated by how theatre and performance can be socially and historically rooted in the landscape and community in which it's made; however big or small. Whether socially, politically or intellectually motivated we strive to carry that principle with us in all of our work.
Working in all sorts of spaces and venues, in our short life we've taken our work to pubs and nightclubs, fields and festivals, not to mention conventional studios and theatres. We have devised and delivered workshops in multiple settings including: schools, community centres and major institutions across Scotland.
We are Wonder Fools.
To date we have staged three full productions: McNeill of Tranent: Fastest Man in the World, an autobiographical show performed by retired athlete George McNeill, who in 1972 was the fastest man in the world despite never being allowed to compete in the Olympic or Commonwealth Games; The Coolidge Effect, an interactive performance that examines how pornography affects our mental health, relationships and sexual experiences using a blend of storytelling, poetry and science; and Lampedusa by Anders Lustgarten, exploring the acts of kindness behind the headlines of the migrant crisis.
