About Guy

Guy Masterson is an Olivier Award winning stage director, actor, producer & writer. He was educated at Christ's Hospital School and then Cardiff University (UK) where he graduated BSc Joint Honours in Biochemistry and Chemistry (Magna Cum Laude). He then studied drama at UCLA before starting an acting career in Hollywood in 1985. Guy returned to the UK in 1989 to study further at LAMDA, after which, he formed his own theatre company, Guy Masterson Productions, in 1991. After a 9 month stint in the West End with Robert Lindsay in 'Cyrano de Bergerac', Guy produced his highly successful solo interpretations of 'Under Milk Wood' (1993) and 'Animal Farm' (1995). He formed Theatre Tours International Ltd in 2000 and has since produced, directed and/or performed in over 120 theatre shows, many of which have toured extensively in the UK and internationally.
Over 21 consecutive seasons, T.T.I. has become the most highly awarded and nominated independent theatre producer at the Edinburgh Festival with a string of its most notable hits. His 2003 production of '12 Angry Men' - famously starring 12 stand-up comedians - smashed box office records at Edinburgh and then toured to Australia and New Zealand. In recognition of his outstanding contribution to the Edinburgh Festival over his first 10 years, he was awarded its highest accolade, The Jack Tinker Memorial 'Spirit Of The Fringe' Award. Guy then originated the West End hit production of 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' (starring Christian Slater and Mackenzie Crook) in 2004 and, in 2005, directed Edinburgh's highest grossing show of all time, 'The Odd Couple', starring Bill Bailey and Alan Davies. His 2009 production about the British comedian, 'Morecambe' transferred to London's West End and won the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in 2010 plus a nomination for Best Actor for the performer.
As an actor, he won the prestigious The Stage Best Actor Award at the Edinburgh Festival for his 2001 hit, 'Fern Hill & Other Dylan Thomas' and has received 3 further nominations for either Best Actor or Best Solo Performer for 'A Soldier's Song' (1998) 'Under Milk Wood' (2003) and 'Shylock' (2011). Most recently, he directed an epic 30 actor production of 'Animal Farm' with the Tumanishvili Film Actors Theatre Company of Tbilisi (Georgia) which won The Stage Best Ensemble Award at Edinburgh 2014.
Guy is also a highly regarded Performance Coach, Voice Artist and Speaker Trainer.
