Geoffrey Beevers
Geoffrey is a keen novelist and playwright.

 

Geoffrey went to Oxford University and then trained as an actor at LAMDA and now works regularly in theatre, television, films and audio. But he also directs plays in the theatre and writes.

He has published four novels, the latest of which is a dystopian novel set in the near future, THE WITHDRAWAL- Fantom Publishing 2019.

His original plays include UNINTELLIGENT DESIGN- Big Finish Audio CD 2011; also STEAK AND MICROCHIPS and THE STORY OF JUDE, both produced at the Orange Tree theatre and then on Radio 4 . He adapted Turgenev’s RUDIN for radio (starring Ian Holm) and has also written drama-documentaries for radio, one on Gerard Manly Hopkins sonnets (starring Derek Jacobi), one on Whistlers paintings, and one on George Eliots marriage.

He is particularly fond of George Eliots novels, and was the first ever to adapt three of them: ADAM BEDE won a Time Out Award and has been produced in theatres across the country; SILAS MARNER followed; and THE MIDDLEMARCH TRILOGY occupied a whole season at the Orange Tree in 2013-14. All are published.
