Jack Spencer

Associate Artist

Originally from Worcester, Tim studied with the National Youth Theatre and Birmingham School of Acting, graduating in 2016 with a 1st. The past five years have seen him performing around the world, from European Theatres, to an Aviation Conference in China, to the assembly halls of Britain’s primary and secondary schools, finally landing him back in Worcester for the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic.

In late 2017 he joined the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s resident theatre company ‘Shakespeare Aloud!’ and went on to perform in a number of special projects with them including a devised piece “I Never Liked Shakespeare” or “I don’t like Shakespeare” or “Shakespeare is Everywhere” (It had a lot of different names) with former Midlands Poet Laureate Roy MacFarlane.

Tim also began working with the Birthplace’s education department and has since become an experienced workshop leader and facilitator. In January 2020 he was invited by Dr Bruce Wall to participate in a session inside HMP Pentonville with a group, half of whom were actors and the other half, inmates. As of 2021, Tim is a founding member of Community Acts, a company running workshops online with a range of participants to create a sense of community and connection during lockdown.

 

In May 2020, frustrated with being so far out of the London theatre scene, Tim reached out to Will and Co, after learning that they were creating a new project for 2020. He served as an associate producer for ‘Bard In The Yard’ during the summer and continues to drop in and out of the project, offering help and advice when needed.

 

When not acting, Tim makes video blogs about growing vegetables in his back garden and indulges his podcast addiction. He’s also got a 2-year-old Black Labrador, and currently spends way too much time chasing her around the house trying to get his slippers back.
