• Stuart directed a Forum theatre piece, Rising, which toured hostels and prisons with great success; an excellent show, which was pacy, moving and inventively staged. Adrian Jackson, Artistic Director and CEO at Cardboard Citizens

  • Stuart’s drive and creativity has always been at the core of Theatre Is... and he has been instrumental in putting the company at the forefront of the development of arts as a tool to enrich the lives of disadvantaged young people. Jo Askham, Former Chair of Theatre Is

  • Stuart’s ability to build positive relationships with our young people has been fantastic. Herts Young Homeless works with young people who are either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, and Stuart demonstrates a deep understanding of the challenges they have faced. Leonie Maddin, Live Life Team Leader

  • About All Fall Away: 'The work might seem less impressive than it is without a superb production from Stuart Mullins. Despite some dodgy accents, it spirits you away to the vast metropolis. Samantha's son, possibly autistic, is played by a puppet, brilliantly manipulated by Seong Kyun Yoo, and Liza Hayden is excellent as Esmeralda, the Duncans' nine-year-old neighbour, who is as sharp as a rat. At the raging drama's still centre is Tanya Franks's shining Samantha, a woman who is gloriously and essentially human in her courage and determination.' Lyn Gardner The Guardian

  • Stuart shares a passion with Identity, to develop a more diverse and representative industry with regards theatre, film and TV. Sam Miller Head of Acting Identity School of Acting
