 Ian 

Moore

THEATRE DIRECTOR  |  PLAYWRIGHT 
PERFORMING ARTS LECTURER  |  DRAMA TEACHER

Hi, I'm Ian Moore, UK-born, Malta-based theatre-maker, director, playwright, football lover, sci-fi nut, serial theatre and movie-goer, Whovian, lover of good literature

and father of two girls... 

I created this site because my endless experiences needed a place to live. Now, the projects I'm working on and the ones I have done can live on. It also offers people the opportunity to see who I am, what I do and contact me should they want to talk about future collaborations. 

My journey has been varied but my life's work continues to be to assist people to reach their full potential and I strive to leave a legacy that shows that I made a difference.
