Justin Clarke
Editor-in-chief

About
Justin is an actor, writer, teacher and European tour guide. Raised in Western Sydney, he always had an avid love for theatre and the spontaneous. This led him to seeking a career in drama teaching which led him to teach in the United Kingdom for three years where he nabbed himself a cheap West End ticket every weekend he could. Being a Drama and English trained teacher, Justin has developed his writing for publishers such as Theatre People and ArtsHub. Justin’s past theatre credits include directing Stiles and Drew’s Soho Cinders, the ‘brave’ Sir Robin in Spamalot for Arcadians Theatre and the French Taunter/Tim in Spamalot for Springers UK, ensemble in Footloose and Pirates of Penzance and his debut role as Muldoon in Jurassic: That is One Big Pile of Musical which took out the audience favourite award in the Sydney Fringe Festival 2015. As the years have gone by, Justin has taken a great interest in swallowing as much theatre as he can and bringing it to the masses through the establishment of Theatre Thoughts.
