As a director…
Pursued by a Bear (1999 to 2005)
A company created with my good friend, the wonderful actor, Joseph Millson. We ran the Company from 1999 to 2005. Producing a number of shows including All Fall Away by the American novelist Said Sayrafiezadeh. Tanya Franks played the lead to critical acclaim. Produced at Theatre503, Lynn Gardner said this:
‘The work might seem less impressive than it is without a superb production from Stuart Mullins.’ Lynn Gardner 4 Stars, The Guardian
Theatre Is... (2005 to 2013)
From the foundations of Snap Theatre I created Theatre Is. Funded by Arts Council England for six years, our key achievement was to engage young people from some of Britain's poorest and most culturally deprived areas of the country in the performing arts. See http://www.theatreis.org/
In 2005 Theatre503, or The Latchmere, was in danger of closing. I became the first chair of a new board of trustees. With the staff and the remarkable Gene David Kirk, we saved the theatre and appointed Paul Robinson and Tim Roseman to be our joint artistic directors. They went on to launch the careers of many young writers. Seeing The Mountaintop by the young black writer, Katori Hall tranfer to the West End was a proud moment. I'm delighted to say the Theatre is now run by close friend, Lisa Spirling.
