Basil

Meredith (aka Merry) is a graduate of Brighton University and has a background in live performance and film. He first set up a film company, Gallivant Film, producing mostly music videos and documentaries; he himself has appeared in over 20 films, and in 2012 starred in the feature film, ‘The Scandalous Four’. But Merry’s main passion is live performance, particularly puppetry and devised, interactive and immersive theatre. With two others he set up SlashTheatre, staging successful comedies like ‘Buddhism, is it just for losers?’ and ‘The Room In The Elephant’. For ITI, he performs in ‘Confetti & Chaos’ and ‘Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience’ – as well as in ‘Faulty Towers The Dining Experience’ as Basil, for which he’s won 5-star reviews in London and on tour in Australia and the UK.
