Robert Neumark-Jones was given his name years before his birth, after his mum had a dream in which Bob Dylan spoke with her. Born with a similarly curly bob, and on Shakespeare’s birthday, Robert for many years tried to claim authorship of either geniuses’ works. When that fell flat (though he still hasn’t given up), he turned his hand to his own writing.
In 2010 he made his Edinburgh debut in Stop, Look, Listen, which was selected for the NSDF 2011 Festival and for which he received the top NSDF Commendation for acting. The 2012 festival saw the debut play by his own theatre company Ninth Life, of which Howard Brenton is honorary patron. “The Questionnaire” co-written with and co-starring Christopher Birks, played the whole month to rave reviews. He has also acted with Sunday’s Child in two productions, including the award winning Kiss Me and You Will See How Important I Am. He is constantly back and forth between New York and London, the two greatest cities in the world. Robert acts, gardens and continues to perform stand up, and write plays. He trained in Moscow at the world renowned Vakhtangov Institute, and recently graduated as a scholarship student from Drama Centre London. Contact him. He’ll like you.
