I have worked with Chris Nelson on two major productions. His ability to bring out the best in actors and performers comes from his innate grasp of both pathos and comedy and all the theatrical bits in between. He is patient and gets what he wants with his players through kindness, confidence-building and explanation: all talents required by a fine director. I would happily take any offer knowing that Chris is the director, without even knowing the piece on offer. For me that is high-praise indeed and not warranted by many with whom I have worked with. To have Chris heading your creative team would be lucky and an advantage for all concerned.

Chris's vision when directing is incredible, he has such an amazing imagination and a great ability to bring out the best in people he works with.
