WEP literally lives, breathes and eats theatre, watching as many new productions as he can. He is a weekly contributor to The Stage newspaper, having written over 225 articles, which offer practical advice to performers on all aspects of the business. His first book, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Acting (But Were Afraid to Ask, Dear), was a huge success, followed by another book with a really long title called Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Going to the Theatre (But Were Too Sloshed to Ask, Dear) – both published by Nick Hern Books.
This cult theatre figure also ran two social media contests to find and support the talent of the future – Search For a Twitter Star and Search For a Composer Star. Both culminating in a live final in London’s West End. His latest project is his own solo show where he auditions special guests for his Free Willy musical.
His identity is the subject of feverish speculation in the media, fuelled by his regular appearances at West End opening nights in costume, wig and latex mask – and rumour has been rife that he could in fact be Lloyd Webber, Cameron Mackintosh, or Judi Dench.
At present, WEP spends his days writing and tweeting to his loyal followers, producing, walking around Soho, disciplining actors, making sure everyone faces the right way in auditions and getting sloshed on as much Dom as possible.
