Toby’s Story

Toby’s story helps to raise the profile of Male Mental Awareness in the UK. This is the story of a man whose inner turmoil leads to him committing suicide leaving a wife and two children of a loving family. The film explores how emotions that run deep and are hidden can have devastating effects.

Warrior Nation through The People’s Orchestra in West Bromwich commissioned the film and I feel very lucky to be playing the role of Toby with Vey Straker playing the role of Veronica his wife.

Despite some technical difficulties we managed to complete the filming of the short in two days. The emotions of the story line are difficult and draining when you have to repeat them. I hope I have done justice to a great team.

I admit I have done very little over the weekend but now it’s time to continue my research into Sir Francis Gastrell ready for my summer gig at Shakespeare’s New Place in Stratford Upon Avon.
