Frankie & Johnny...
Neil is in rehearsals for the upcoming production of Frankie & Johnny in the Clare de Lune at the Chichester Festival Theatre.
This tender, funny and passionate play about two lonely people getting together and opening up has been a hit on stages around the world.
Neil plays Johnny and Dervla Kirwan plays Frankie.
Neil will be appearing in the new eight-part BBC drama series, The Interceptors.
Created by Tony Saint (Margaret Thatcher: Long Walk To Finchley; Strike Back), The Interceptor is about a top secret, state-of-the-art law enforcement team whose unswerving mission is to hunt down some of Britain’s most dangerous criminals.
O.T. Fagbenie leads the cast which also stars Trevor Eve and Jo Joyner.
Plebs series 2
Neil is currently appearing in the new series of ITV2 sitcom Plebs.
Plebs follows three desperate young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city – a city that happens to be Ancient Rome.
The series stars Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson (After You’ve Gone) as the three young men. Watch on ITV Player.
With Great Pleasure
In BBC Radio 4′s With Great Pleasure Neil chooses his favourite and funniest writing about food. It’s read by Miranda Raison and Jack Klaff.
Pieces range from Laurie Lee and Chris Stewart on the delights of Spanish cuisine, to Keith Floyd and Anthony Bourdain on the joys of seafood – and Geoff Dyer on his loathing of the same. Provocative one-liners from PJ O’Rourke, Samuel Pepys on honest gluttony, words of wisdom from Clement Freud and DH Lawrence describing what he ate on his travels in Italy complete a brilliant and comic bill of fare.

Neil performed in The 10th anniversary of The 24 Hour Plays® Celebrity Gala which took place on Sunday 24th November 2013, hosted by Rob Brydon with an introduction from Artistic Director, Kevin Spacey. Over £165,000 was raised on the night for The Old Vic Theatre Trust and Old Vic New Voices.
