Christopher Peacock


Christopher first performed the role of Tadzio at the Lord Stanley Theatre in London in July 2013. He repeated it at the Etcetera Theatre in November 2013, as lunchtime drama, and again at the Etcetera in July 2014, as part of Desire and Pursuit: Three one-man plays on themes of beauty, faith, obsession. His most recent appearance was at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2014.


Christopher's working life began as a journalist and he is perhaps best known as a reporter and presenter on Southern Television and London Tonight. In 2008 he turned to acting and since then has been seldom off the stage, appearing in both classics and modern drama. Most recently he has been seen as Canon Chasuble in The Importance of Being Earnest (Metrodeco, Brighton), Sir Johnstone Kentley in Rope (South Hill Park, Bracknell), Lovewit in The Alchemist

(Riverside, Walton-on-Thames), Hamlet's Father and the Player King in Hamlet (Greenwich Playhouse) and Leonato in Much Ado About Nothing (riverside, Walton-on-Thames). His next appearance will be as Colonel Pickering in Shaw's Pygmalion at several venues in South-East England.
