Frank Bramwell & Vicky Holding

Frank set up AlternativeTheatre to explore the challenges and excitement of all forms of new writing, especially when it is inspired by classical Theatre. For him, learning from the past, engaging with the here and now, and looking to the future, all make for vital Theatre. 

In 2020, Frank was joined by Vicky, who brought her tremendous energy and skills to bear, initially as a Co-creator/Actor, and then 

working with Frank to manage all aspects of AlternativeTheatre.
