Co-Artistic Director, Marlborough Productions
David Sheppeard (he/him) co-founded the Marlborough Productions in 2008.
His work at Marlborough Productions has encompassed a wide range of projects from the groundbreaking national LGBTQ+ touring theatre project New Queers on the Block to the heritage project Queer in Brighton. He specialises in work made for unusual contexts that challenges notions about how and where queer led work can be presented.
Since 2012 David has been the Co Artistic Director of The Spire, based at the grade II listed St Marks Chapel in East Brighton, with ambition of converting this unique space into a creative hub supporting the independent arts community.
As an independent producer David has supported a diverse range of artists to realise their creative visions, most recently Marisa Carnesky and Harry Clayton-Wright.
In 2016 David completed an MA in Performance at the University of Chichester, where he is now an Associate Lecturer and continues to develop his own artistic work as a writer and performer.
