“I have had some success and I am very lucky to have had my work, short plays and short films, be produced all over the UK and across the pond in New York City. 

Abandoned has been almost two years in the making. I’m excited to finally see it performed and to make my directing debut.

Thank you to my amazing cast! They are some of the funniest and most talented bunch of actors I’ve had the chance to work with! 

Thank you to Matthew Ford and Rhys Jones for their constant support, ideas and all their help through the many rehearsals.

A special thank you goes to the Old Market Tavern for allowing us to take over their function room for rehearsals and to Little Man Coffee Company for all their help in producing Abandoned.

Ben Wilson

 After graduating from film studies, it is not without a sense of irony that Ben took the plunge into acting instead. Having gradually built up a backlog of various performances since 2014, such as a 2-man play called “The Universe plc” and landing one of the lead roles in a Comedy-Drama Web Series 'Whovians' (2015 - 2016), he has not looked back since. The future is looking ever more optimistic and he can't wait to perform 'Abandoned' with the rest of its very talented cast!
