WHO ARE WE?

Raging Calm was founded in 2012 by BAFTA and International Emmy nominated director of film, television and theatre, David Tucker.

He has directed over 40 professional theatre productions at the RSC, the Bristol Old Vic, Liverpool Playhouse and Manchester Library theatres.

David has also taught extensively at the NFTS, London Film Academy, Met Film School, Drama Centre London, Drama Studio London and has directed graduation productions at RADA, Drama Centre and Drama Studio London.

Tucker started Raging Calm in 2012 and since then has produced several projects such as; THE BEAST WITHIN, (an adaptation of a Zola novel which David wrote), SCORCHED EARTH (a play about heroin addiction, developed through workshops with playwright Che Walker), and film projects including BURN THE CLOCK, which was released in 2014.

Raging Calm has also conducted workshops such as HEARTACHE OF MY EYES (2013) and FLIGHT (2015). The latter was created in association with St Mungos Broadway Charity, with people whose lives had been affected by addiction.  These workshops operated within boroughs including Wandsworth, Southwark, and Hackney. They aided participants’ rehabilitation and recovery through the medium of devising drama. The workshops aimed to build trust between each group and provide a non-judgemental space to explore addiction, collectively creating a piece of theatre about the journey to recovery.

Raging Calm has been revived in 2021 with an exciting new workshop. A unique adaptation of Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST, it explores themes relating to COVID-19.
