STEPHEN MEAD trained as an actor at London’s Royal Academy of
Dramatic Art. Besides appearing in many stage productions, he has worked
as a drama adviser to Goldcrest Films UK and written for Channel4 (TV).
Stephen has made a specialty of DRAMATIC RECITATIONS (from
memory) from the works of DICKENS, EDGAR ALLAN POE and other
19th-century authors. These bring poems and prose by these writers to vivid
life without costume, make-up, lights or scenery, Most 19th-century
literature was written to be heard as well as read, and Stephen Mead’s
enthralling renditions of these pieces have gripped audiences in the UK and
the US since 1987.

Stephen has worked for London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the National
Arts Collection Fund, the National Trust (UK), Richmond Adult College,
Missenden Abbey Buckinghamshire, among many other venues. He has
appeared on the bill of the world-famous Player’s Theatre in London
singing Victorian music-hall. Stephen had the honour of being invited to
perform his one-man adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at
the Dickens Festival in Dickens’ home town Rochester, Kent, in the historic
Guildhall three years in a row. He also performed a tour of Switzerland
under the auspices of the Anglo-Swiss society and appeared with singer
Stacey Earle in a coast-to-coast tour of the USA.
