AWARD WINNING THEATRE DIRECTOR AND PLAYWRIGHT, SPECIALISING IN CLASSIC TEXT, NEW WRITING AND THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES.
Hi, I'm Ian Moore, UK-born, Malta-based theatre-maker, 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.
