The stand out performance though is from Calum Robshaw, who’s character has real depth. He plays the awkward and slightly desperate Gus. At the beginning of the play you laugh with and admittedly at him, as he shows off his over priced and some what lame apron, by the end of the play you feel great empathy for him. His impressive comic delivery mixed with his ability to be present and truthful make for a great and moving performance.
“Never Trust a Man Bun” Review – Emelia Marshall Lovsey, Actors Awareness
“The audience’s darling, the UK diplomat Charlie (Calum Robshaw), is a frightening mix of public school blubbering champagne-guzzling man-child and Nigel Farage. Robshaw’s performance is hilarious, and further deepens the disgust as his atrocious policies are flippantly enforced. This well-pitched comic relief is a God-send in a show that occasionally veers on the monotonous or dense.”
“I was inspired by your delight in the text”

“Very positive attitude, consistently working for and with the group”
Susan Tordoff, Censored
“Calum is one of the most delightful young performers I have had the pleasure of working with in over 20 years. He has journeyed extensively as a performer. I cannot recommend him more to you.”
Jonathan Goodwin, Head of part time learning at Arts Ed.
Calum shows an ability to go beyond what is expected to get the job done. He is very dedicated to getting the best out of himself and others. He is a natural leader and is able to think on his feet and respond in the moment. He shows great maturity and responsibility… He has a very positive outlook.”
Colin Farquharson, East 15
“Calum is excellent… giving a realistic and raw performance that keeps a tight hold on the audience’s attention right up to the final, heart-breaking scenes… It brings the character to life in a way that feels fresh and fascinating.”
