About Clock Tower

Clock Tower Theatre Company is a dynamic young company producing thought-provoking theatre that will also make you laugh along the way. It was set up in 2013 by Steve Bennett to provide opportunity for emerging creatives. Over time the focus was gradually honed into what is now the main purpose of the company: to mount productions of new writing. Five years on, and with a slew of productions and workshops under its belt, the company is now managed by a team of five theatre lovers. 

We are always looking for opportunities to connect with creatives, so if you have a script that needs reading aloud, a play that needs performing or a voice that needs to be heard - please get in touch!

Louise Swindell

Associate director

Louise joined the Clock Tower team in 2017 having previously worked with the company and had a cracking time doing so. Before moving to Cardiff Louise worked as a Freelance Stage Manager, touring with small - mid scale theatre companies and managing a 700 seat venue at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Louise likes directing shows with small casts with thought provoking scripts - send ‘em over! When she’s not busying herself with the world of theatre, Louise is often found drinking a GnT, dancing in the dark and being crafty - not in a sly way.

She is primarily an actor-singer, with a penchant for quirkiness and comedy. Having been performing in Service! since 2015, she has loved every second of the ride, from first read to Edinburgh to UK tour - and is excited to continue the journey. Isabelle is also a co-director of the Cardiff Fringe Theatre Festival.
