Patrick McConnell - Director / Writer

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

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. 

For us here at Rotten Park Road, Patrick has written and directed a number of stage plays, short films, showreels, comedy sketches (live and digital), livestream productions and two feature films. Both films 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).

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

Patrick also works for us as a creative facilitator for a variety of live, interactive training events.
