Mark starred in Bluebird from 5-30 May 2015 as Andy Green.
Bluebird follows Jimmy, a mini cab driver, over the course of one night in London, exploring the city’s A-roads, back alleys and the lives that dwell around them. Jimmy listens as his ‘fares’ tell their individual stories in the back of his Nissan. He hears from a father mourning the murder of his daughter, a bouncer’s memory of a violent night at his club, a disillusioned engineer of London’s underground, as well as, finally, Jimmy’s estranged wife Clare. Because as it turns out, Jimmy’s own is the darkest story of all.
On stage between 5-30 May 2015

"Mark Griffin’s performance as a bouncer haunted by the visions of nightclub violence is particularly memorable; his stilted refusals to engage in conversation turn into a pained recounting of the night’s events"
"I was most impressed with Christien Anholt and Mark Griffin. These actors both played two different characters – each new character being the complete opposite of their last one. This really showcased their acting skills and each of them was very realistic. I would be more than happy to see either of them in future productions!"
"Mark Griffin, playing Andy Green, was quite superb in showcasing the perverse relationship between a cabbie and punter"
