Chad Porter is a Norwich-based theatre director and scriptwriter. Having graduated from the University of East Anglia with a First Class (Hons) Degree in Drama in 2017, Chad remained in Norwich as Artistic Director of his theatre company, Laughing Mirror - founded whilst in his final year at University - and the Front of House Supervisor at the Maddermarket Theatre. Chad specialises in both scripted and improvised comedic theatre, in particular the practises of commedia dell’ Arte and clowning. Since Laughing Mirror’s formation, Chad has guided the company to three sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows in two years, co-writing and directing one each year himself (‘Guy Fawkes It Up’, 2017 and ‘Framed’, 2018). Chad is very excited to be working with Creative Space Norwich and helping to grow the ever-more-important relationship between well-being and the creative arts.
