Mark has competed in the World Games, played King Lear before, packed houses and packed bags for 20 years in Tesco’s... But that’s not even half the story.
Part live interview, part self-led confessional, this is Mark’s life and he’s ready to take a seat at the table.
Ambition, disruption, grief and frustration.
He hopes this show will be the making of him.
Are you ready for what he has to say?
