Patrick McConnell - Director / Writer

Born and raised in Staffordshire, Patrick trained in Professional Acting at Birmingham School of Speech and Drama.

After training, he worked as a jobbing actor before co-founding the new writing theatre company Random Productions, now Rotten Park Road Productions.

Passionate about new writing, Patrick's first full length stage play to be produced was A Story for when were Grandads which went on national tour and also played at The Buxton Fringe Festival, where the show went on to win him the Best New Writing award. 

He has since written, directed and performed in a number of further stage plays, two short films, numerous comedy sketches (live and digital) and three screenplays, two of which have been released and are currently out on V-O-D / Amazon Prime: How Not To Work & Claim Benefits (completed 2017) and Happy Little Bunnies (2021).

As a Director, his slate includes short films, comedy sketches, theatre productions and two feature length films. 

His most recent completed screenplay as a Writer is The Girl, The Ogre and The Boy Dressed as Hitler, currently seeking finance.

Branching out from his work as a writer and director, Patrick also has extensive experience in creative facilitation and live, interactive training events.
