About me:

Brutus in 'Julius Caesar', REVIEW: "Matt Penson rises to the considerable challenge of the role with authoritative fortitude and elegantly impressive control - a fine and wholly convincing performance."

Jack in 'Lord of the Flies', REVIEW: "Penson is a revelation as Jack – utterly convincing in his rage and violence but always allowing glimpses of terrified little boy trying to cope in a strange new world."
