Clive trained at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, having studied for a Political Science Degree at the University of Liverpool. He wanted to be a political journalist, but thought his acting talents might just be better served in the legitimate profession.
He has worked extensively in the West End, repertory and commercial theatres throughout the UK and has also been fortunate to work in Sweden, Australia and Japan.
Theatre: Comedy of Errors, Twelfth Night, Merry Wives of Windsor, Chorus of Disapproval, Joking Apart. He has portrayed both upright and dubious pillars of the community in Pravda (journalist), Candida (priest) and Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet (murderer). Touring musicals include: Fiddler on the Roof, South Pacific (also in Japan), The Sound of Music, Godspell and A Christmas Carol (Sweden) as well as pantomimes from Aladdin to Beauty & The Beast, playing Dame and Baddie.
West End: Gross Indecency (trial of Oscar Wilde), Harvey and the two longest running plays, The Mousetrap and The Woman in Black.
Radio work: Persuasion (with Juliet Stevenson), Legal Affairs and Winnie Holden’s Angel, all produced by Vanessa Whitburn.
His most challenging work has been two ‘one man’ plays: Peter Flannery’s A Boys Own Story (the fall from grace of a goalkeeper) and Lorraine Mullaney’s Martin Lingus (from Adonis to rough sleeper).
