Following our previous announcements, we’d like to introduce the other member of our cast.

The eponymous stowaway, Perce Blackborow, will be played by Craig Poole.

Craig trained at the Imagine Theatre School in Cirencester and with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. He has a particular interest in puppetry, cabaret and contemporary theatre and has been involved with regional theatre as a performer from a young age.

Craig has been in various productions including Murder What We Wrote, The Beaux Stratagem, A Christmas Carol and Aftermath (all with Imagine Theatre), and Spring Awakening with The Barn Academy. He is pleased to be making his professional debut with Stolen Elephant Theatre Company at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and is looking forward to moving to London to launch a full time career as an actor later this year.
