Reece's Pieces - An evening of conversation with actor/director Reece Dinsdale

Book

Reece's Pieces will be a joyful evening full of stories and anecdotes from actor and television director Reece Dinsdale's illustrious career.

"It started in lockdown as a challenge to myself. As an actor I had never felt comfortable speaking publicly unless I was playing a role, so I thought I’d face a few demons by attempting to talk live online to my twitter followers. What I discovered was, that when I got started… I couldn’t stop! Reaching the age of sixty, and having been round the block at least twice, I realised I might have a tale or two to tell."

Reece’s Pieces… just a bloke beginning to find his voice.

Reece Dinsdale has performed extensively in theatres across the country including his role as Walter Harrison in This House at The National Theatre, George Jones in The Absence of War for Headlong Theatre Company and the title roles in Richard III and The Master Builder Builder at Leeds Playhouse. He won a Yorkshire Award for his contribution to Arts and Entertainment after playing Alan Bennett in Untold Stories (also Leeds Playhouse).

Dinsdale won the Special Jury Prize at the Geneva Film Festival for his portrayal of John Brandon in the feature film I.D. and played Guildenstern (to Tim Spall’s Rosencrantz) in Kenneth Branagh’s highly acclaimed feature film Hamlet.

As well as his stage and big screen performances, Reece has starred in many high- profile TV dramas ranging from leading roles in the BAFTA award winning Threads and Jim Henson’s Storyteller, through Spooks, Life on Mars, to Joe McIntyre in Coronation Street and the hugely popular comedy series Home to Roost opposite the late John Thaw.

Reece recently joined the cast of Emmerdale playing the role of Paul Ashdale.
