About Us.

Jeremy Linnell

Hi, I'm Jeremy; a theatre maker, writer and performer. My preferred title is professional idiot. I believe everyone is an artist, art is for everyone and being creative is an act of radical empathy. I spent 5 years with Hijinx theatre training neurodiverse actors and making work with them. I also sat on the panel for National Theatre Wales TEAM.  I create grungy, dangerous, uncomfortable bouffon-inspired work that uses wild audience interaction to enhance storytelling. Tin Shed Theatre is a company I’ve had the pleasure to work with many times in the past and it’s an honour to support their future as member of their board.

Georgie Berry

“The different between try and triumph is a little umph” 

I’m Georgie - a creative, enthusiastic, quirky individual and gender stereotype breaker. I am the doer, the manual labourer and risk taker. I was born and bread in Newport and have so much passion and love for my home city, it’s not as shitty as people might think it is... 

I come from a background of events and entertainment, working onsite to set up large scale events, indoor and outdoor in all weathers! I’m an all rounder within Tin Shed Theatre but you will never see me on the stage; I focus on the production and technical side of things, from behind the scenes, whilst enjoying all the magic and seeing all your happy faces! Tin Shed Theatre is a fantastic team of creative people and I am so proud to be a part of the journey.

George Harris

Artistic Director

George Harris is a freelance creative producer and Artistic Director of Tin Shed Theatre Co. specialising in making multi scaled site responsive and immersive theatrical work. Georgina is also a skilled community facilitator and is co-founder of a number of community arts provisions. She has worked and trained to identify local community stakeholders and larger partnership organisations to support the work of Tin Shed and continues to integrate her passion as an Artistic Director into her creative producing skills. 

"I like to think of myself as a connector first and foremost. The creative linkage between people and place. My life blood as a creative is to surround myself with interesting collaborators, pulling together skills, initiating conversation and using these key elements to extract the story we want to tell. I think thats all we're ever doing really isn't it? Telling stories. For me its the artistic vision of the how and the where, forming lasting bonds to make art and culture the vehicle for social change and lasting social infrastructure”

Aled Wyn Thomas 

Shwmae! My name is Aled and I’ve been a part of the creative community in South Wales for over 10 years. In this time I have collaborated with companies like National Theatre Wales, BBC Cymru, Kitsch & Sync and (of course) Tin Shed Theatre Co. 

My writing is inspired by human experiences, emotional connections and my other main passion in life - football.  

As a performer, I’ve appeared in productions at The Other Room, Wales Millennium Centre and Sherman Theatre. 

My television credits include Y Prîs, Caerdydd, Rownd a Rownd and Pobl y Cwm.

I make short films with my partner Branwen under the monicker Ffilm Bach-a-Mawr. We are inspired by small stories with big ideas, the study of identity, language and social trends. 
We also like to piss around in wigs from time-to-time in honour of our musical heroes from yesteryear. 

Tin Shed Theatre means a lot to me. Aside from giving me an immeasurable amount of experience, as a creative, I am continually impressed and inspired by their work and take immense pride in still being part of their strange and beautiful world.
