John Stenhouse – Actor & Director

John Stenhouse

Actor, Director and Founder of Harpenden Young Hearts Youth Theatre.

A female Canadian circus skills trainer taught me to lasso in Brixton. What more can I say? I work hard and play harder. Mad, bad and dangerous to know, I’m a mild mannered thespian who’s as happy in West Side Story as I am in east end fringe. I tread the Bard. End of story. But let’s call it the Scottish Play, shall we? Please see CV below.
