Charlie Dupré is a playwright, actor and spoken word artist. His debut solo show, The Stories of Shakey P re-imagined the Bard as a playground battle rapper, and was part-commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company. He went on to win the Rising Star award at the Let’s All Be Free Film Festival for his short film, Faustus: Remixed, and his first ensemble play, Macblair told the story of Tony Blair as a Macbeth-style tragicomedy. It played the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes to critical success, and was one of The Scotsman’s Top 6 hot picks for political shows in 2017. In 2019, its sequel, Boris Rex was nominated for an Off-Westend Award during its run at the Tristan Bates Theatre, London.
“Charlie’s motivating, inspiring approach to the participants, taking into account the interests of each individual, was particularly appreciated.” – W. Halfmann, Oberstufenleiter, IGS Kastellaun
“With wit, charm and sensitivity, Charlie creates a wonderful atmosphere in which sparks can fly in even the shyest student. In his refreshing authenticity, he ably demonstrates; how much fun playing with language, words and rhythm can be. They want to keep playing!” – S. Lenner, Maria-Theresa Gymnasium, München
