Archie Bowen-Brookes:  

Who do you want me to be?

Who is Archie Bowen- Brookes?

Archie Bowen-Brookes is a highly versatile, energetic actor with an impressive theatre presence and performance history.

Following years of professional theatre training his stagecraft was enjoyed by many at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2023.

He opened the Festival month by performing the light-hearted period monologue 'Love, Monty.'

A demanding showpiece that highlighted Archie's ability to multi-role, and deliver the spectrum of emotion required by a skilled actor.

And due to demand, he has now added Faversham Fringe, on Saturday 28th October 2023, to his diary.

For any Producer or Director this is a superb opportunity to meet Archie.

Here is a sample of Archie, at twelve years, playing the conscience of a drug induced, guilt ridden bully in POETS Day.

He enters the auditorium and commands the roles of villain, victim and hero simultaneously through the guise of a chat show host.

This was filmed at the show's dress rehearsal.

"Brookes gives Monty that air of superiority and that feeling of vulnerability which evokes Wodehouse and Campion in equal measure. It is a very crafted performance."
