 Ian 

Moore

North East 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 give anyone the chance to contact me should they want to talk about future collaborations.

 

My journey is ongoing and 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. 

COMING SOON

Orwell’s world-famous fable re-imagined by award-winning Masquerade and directed by Ian Moore, a dynamic, daring and contemporary take on a timeless story this brand-new production remains faithful to Orwell's original, retaining both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message.
