Simon  Laherty

Simon Laherty

Ladies and Gentleman my name is Simon Maurice Laherty. I have been with the acting ensemble since 2003. We’re all actors and we all can act. Lucky, I’m no good at office work. Meetings can get boring but they have to get done. The Artistic Director is hard. He’s hard on the actors. The best thing that ever happened to me in my life was my grandfather giving me his medals when I turned 21.

My name is Sarah Mainwaring and I have been working with Back to Back since 2006. Being part of the ensemble has been rewarding. Their artistic standard and depth of comprehension is impressive and that empowers me to do great work.

Hello audience, I’m Scott Price and a member of the ensemble. I’ve been working here since 2007.

In some countries they call people with disabilities children. Maybe that’s just lost in translation, a cultural thing. Sometimes people say and name things differently in different cultures. So we shouldn’t be too offended by that.

My motto is to look for opportunities. I have a funny and intriguing relationship with Back to Back. It’s exhilarating. Some of the work has been provocative, controversial and rebellious; it’s in your face.

I’ve enjoyed working in a large family. We get a laugh and a cry and we make shows from our hearts and minds. And my hashtag is #autismpride

I’ve been here since 2008. My main purpose is to make shows and tour them around the world. My best achievement is expanding my creativity. I can’t think of anything else. My motto is: if there is a will there’s a way, and there is always a way.

Hello. I am Romany.

I was a liar as a child. I still am, except now I call it acting. Pick a story and stick to it. Become it.

I can’t tell you who I am. I’m sorry. I could be a patchwork person. A cork board, a book of never fully formed ideas. One day I might become a cohesive piece of art. I will become this image, fully and nothing else. What I am now is the disposable draft. The first copy. “That’s not really me,” I will say.  Not yet. I’m still too messy, too unfinished. But that’s ok. That’s what art is. I’m just playing my messy, unfinished part in it.
