Theatre – Spotlight on BEN CLIFFORD "Casey"
Ben Clifford plays Casey in the one act comedy A Man of Two Minds, and brings his own crazy energy to the character. His audition blew us away and it was an easy decision to have him fill the roll of Casey. Working with him has been nothing but a pleasure, as he is always on time and enjoys making us laugh.
He has been involved in theatre in some form or another since he was twelve. What started as a way to “avoid doing real school work” evolved firmly into the passion that drives his life. He secretly wanted to be an accountant, but his parents told him “there’s no money in business, get a stable job in the arts”.
“Really looking forward to playing Casey in A Man of Two Minds. Casey, for me, combines the haphazard traits of youth and a natural inclination to story-tell.”
In 2007, he studied Drama and Theatre in Trinity College Dublin. After graduating, he continued on to write and perform sketch comedy around Ireland and at the Edinburgh Fringe. While in Toronto, Canada, Ben has acted both in theatre and in film, building experience as the lead of two features and numerous plays. He also maintains his Irish connection by working in the Irish theatre scene in Canada. Ben plans to return to his residence in Dublin, Ireland once the Bony Fiddle theatre production of Man of Two Minds has closed.
