Jamie Christian

Biography


Jamie Christian began his acting career in 1997 following his graduation from The Poor School. His stage credits from that time include Our Country’s Good, The Birthday Party, Playboy of the Western World and The Doctor in Spite of Himself.


His TV credits include an appearance in the penultimate episode of Inspector Morse

( The Wench Is Dead ) and participation in Sixty Minutes Silence the 1997 Turner Prize winning film by visual artist Gillian Wearing.


After a short career break Jamie returned as a writer/director and his first play A Fight at The Opera ran for six sold-out nights at the Etcetera Theatre, followed by a reading and debate at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.


Jamie co-wrote a pantomime, Snow White and The Seven Vertically Challenged Actors which was performed at the Tristan Bates Theatre. Making his directorial debut the following year with the pantomime Cinderella - A Gender Tale of Confusion,  he has now subsequently directed other writers work at the Tristan Bates Theatre.


His next play Skewed Judgement followed, which ran for two sold-out weeks at the White Bear Theatre in 2017 to great success.


A review noted  “After being lucky enough to catch Jamie Christian’s previous play, the terrific A Fight at the Opera, I was keen to see what he came up with next. Skewed Judgement has lots of the same elements – laugh-out-loud humour, farcical situations, and flawed characters with troubled pasts. The strength of the play comes from Christian’s ability to place very differently flawed characters in an unusual situation and explore how it goes wrong.”


MUSEUM PIECES is Jamie Christian’s second collection of monologues – following on from last year’s successful production of FOUR LOYALTY CARDS. This time around, each character is directly affected (in very different ways and circumstances) by the television show Naked Attraction.


This is a “work-in-progress” that Jamie Christian would like to share with the audience, in order to obtain vital feedback that can take the work to the next level!
