Founders and Directors
Martin founded Ten Ten in 2007 alongside his sister Clare, and he is the Artistic Director.
Martin began his career as a professional actor in productions such as Blood Brothers in the West End and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the National Theatre, as well as a wide variety of film and television credits, before becoming a writer. He has written for Doctors on BBC1 and numerous stage plays including The Jeweller and On Eagle’s Wings. However, he has dedicated much of the past 10 years writing, directing and producing plays for Ten Ten, including the award-winning production of This Is My Body.
Clare has worked in business management for over 25 years. Having worked for the Monopol group for 12 years in the North West she moved to London to work for Christie’s Auction House.
As a volunteer Clare was involved in Church youth work in her home parish for many years, leading the confirmation programme and youth events for her local LPA. The opportunity to form Ten Ten with her brother allowed her to combine her passion for theatre, helping young people to know God better and years of business and finance practice.
So far, working on Ten Ten Resources has been exciting and a privilege.
Core Members of Staff
Anna O’Brien – Administrator
Originally from Liverpool, I have a background working as a nurse, a shop manager and in a Special Needs school. I have lived in London for the past 15 years, and for nine of those years have worked full-time as a volunteer at Ten Ten Theatre. I am also Clare & Martin’s mum. A recent highlight for me was having the privilege to meet Pope Francis in the church of Santa Sabina in Rome on Ash Wednesday 2015!
Victoria Brenn – Assistant Administrator
I have been working for Ten Ten since October 2013 as an administrative assistant after assisting on the production of Kolbe’s Gift. I previously worked for Ten Ten as a stage manager on the Secondary School Tour in 2010. In between I did an internship at the Victoria & Albert Museum in the Theatre & Peformance department where I worked on the iPad app “Played in Britain: Modern Theatre in 100 Plays 1945-2010”. I have loved going to the theatre ever since my early teens and still thoroughly enjoy attending now. Working for Ten Ten Theatre is a wonderful opportunity and be able to support them in their projects and is a worthwhile experience.
