Chris York

Stockroom Artist

Chris York is a Scarborough born writer and a Mountview Academy graduate.

His play Build a Rocket toured the UK in 2019 and was published by Methuen. It was Richard Jordan of The Stage’s “Best new British play of the year”.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre commissioned Chris’ play All Delighted People which celebrated forty years of youth theatre in Scarborough. He adapted and directed Edgar Allan Poe’s classic The Pit & The Pendulum for Creation Theatre in 2018.

His short-plays include; Jimbob (The Arcola), 212 (The Bunker/Soho), A Million Little Hands (The Arts), Seven People (The Arts), Act 6 (Rosemary Branch), Jesus is a Rochdale Girl (The Last Refuge), Drafts (Southwark Playhouse), Don’t Show this to Cheri (Stratford East).

Chris says – “Joining Stockroom is a game-changer for me. It feels seminal. Not only does it give me a new outlet to help tell stories, but also to connect with like-minded artists. I don’t doubt we will become collaborators and creative allies beyond our time with Stockroom.”
