Peter Wicks – Actor
Ahoy-hoy, fellow traveller.
Peter is a formerly young, British man who does acting. He does speaking, he does moving. Sometimes simultaneously.

Here's what he's doing now, what he's done previously, and what he looks like.

Awards & Press

Awarded an NSDF Emerging Artists in association with Spotlight / Royal Shakespeare Company / Methuen Drama Commendation for Acting for A HERO OF OUR TIME.

For A HERO OF OUR TIME

“Masterful portrayal . . . His remarkable facial control and captivating stage presence mark him out as a man to watch . . . Truly brilliant.”
“Peter Wicks is measured, subtle, stunning.”
★★★★ ED FRINGE REVIEW

“The internal struggle of Peter Wicks’ Pechorin was eloquently performed, ranging from a desperate self-loathing and need for redemption through Princess Mary’s idealism and hope, to a cruel desire to wound her and be left to his own desolation.”
★★★★ THE SKINNY

“The quintessential anti-hero.”
★★★★ BROADWAY BABY

“Utterly electric.”
★★★★★ one4review

For YOU OBVIOUSLY KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT

“Eva Sampson . . . Helen Booth and Peter Wicks become the voice of the apartment and sing and dance their way through the story . . . They perform with a tongue-in-cheek humour and immense energy.”
★★★★ British Theatre Guide

“Eva Sampson’s production is not short on invention – bright and colourful and big of heart, a kind of live action cartoon. The energy of the company is endearing and the aesthetic incredibly well-realised.”
The Stage

“Mesmerising.”
★★★★★ The New Current

What’s going on? Where am I? What am I doing? Don’t panic, stalker. Here’s the latest.

“SISTERS” at the Rose Theatre Kingston, 15-28 July 2013

Following a month of manic pipe waving and shooting dogs on Dartmoor, I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be messing around with Lifelike Theatre for their next show, SISTERS.

It plays at the (utterly dazzling) Rose Theatre Kingston later this month as part of the (bloody wonderful) International Youth Arts Festival. A sterling cast of fresh faces and seasoned marvels in a crackling new take on Chekhov.

Do take time to peruse the IYAF website. It’s a brilliant showcase for new creatives, very close to my heart, and there’s always a good deal of astonishing things to see.

That face you’re pulling is your “I’m sold” face, and it is very fetching. Here are the details:

A funny, heartfelt family drama inspired by Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Lifelike Theatre produces new writing by playwrights including Royal Court Writers Programme graduate Ben Clare, telling great stories about now… a little bit like life really.

“THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES” (Tour) 23 May – 21 June 2013

Well, comrades, this has crept up.

Enter Stage Right are touring this spooky, sumptuous new adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes adventure for ten performances between the 23rd May and 21st June.

It’s that thrilling, terrifying final week of rehearsals. It’s looking right good. You’d love it. I can tell.

Here’s the important stuff:

Enter Stage Right present
THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Adapted by Claire Malcomson

Hound of the Baskervilles

“Mr Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!”

Sir Charles Baskerville has been found dead in his garden. Is it from natural causes or is it something to do with the family curse?

Is there really a huge, spectral hound that roams the moors beyond the borders of Baskerville Hall?

Watch as Sherlock Holmes unravels the mystery in this elegant, atmospheric, and gripping production.

“You Obviously Know What I’m Talking About” at The Hat Factory, Luton, 18-20 April 2013

It’s back! Following a cracking run at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, You Obviously Know What I’m Talking About returns to the Hat Factory, Luton for 4 performances. Delighted to be mucking about with the achingly talented folk at How It Ended once more.

Here’s the beef:

You Obviously Know What I'm Talking About

How It Ended Productions present a magical theatrical experience about those days when if anything can go wrong it will and inevitably at the worst possible moment.

Welcome to a day in the life of Winfield Scott Boring. A man trapped in his own carefully orchestrated routine and an avid collector of things, Winfield has not left his apartment (42A Hockwell Green) for several years. Until one morning Winfield accidently climbs out of the wrong side of bed and begins an epic journey ruled by sods law. As he battles the elements and navigates his way through a world of colourful characters and wires crossed, Winfield’s imagination is his only limit.

Combining hilarious comic scenarios and deeply poignant visual sequences, You Obviously Know What I’m Talking About is an unforgettable tale that celebrates the topsy-turvy nature of life.

Hello, you!

Right. This place is all a bit new, so I’d appreciate it if you left those filthy boots by the door on your way in.

That’s better. You can sit down now.

Sit.

First off, thanks for popping by. I know it’s always difficult wading through that self-indulgent swamp of actor websites, and I’m afraid I’m probably not going to make it any easier for you. All you can do is slip on your best cagoule and waders and pray for the odd cat picture.

This little area will mainly be used to let you know what I’m up to and where you can see me. If you want to, of course. I won’t force you. I’m fully aware that my face is terrifying.

There’s a handy wee menu to your left that’ll take you to other bits of the site. The portfolio has an array of headshots and production images. It’ll soon be home to the showreel and all that business.

The credits give you a snapshot of what I’ve done, but you’re better off hopping over to my Spotlight page for a more up to date overview.

The press section is potentially the most sickening. Do not attempt on a full stomach.

If you’d like to throw me some helpful feedback, complain about the lack of cat pictures, or even just say “yo”, hurl yourself over to the contact page. Stone the crows! You could even follow me on Twitter. It’s all there waiting for you.

Thanks again, chum. I’ll pop the kettle on for you.

Sit.

Fancy a natter? Cup o’ tea? Give me a holler.

I’m mostly quite nice.

Really.
