Adrian McLoughlin Co-Founder And Actor
Adrian is one of the three founder members of Vital Signs Productions. He has been a professional actor for well over thirty years and has worked throughout the UK in rep theatres and on major tours as well as in the West End and at the National Theatre several times. He's also worked a great deal on the fringe in London, most recently in "The Rivals" at the Arcola. He's made a few trips abroad too - to New York with the wonderful Ayckbourn play "Private Fears in Public Places" and to Egypt, Israel and various Balkan countries with "King Lear" and "Measure for Measure" - also pretty good plays it has to be said. He's done plenty of TV too both here and abroad and is enjoying his more recent film career - he can be seen shortly as Stalin in the Armando Iannucci film "The Death of Stalin". Beyond his acting Adrian has also produced and directed several plays and also runs his own corporate company so is generally kept quite busy ............ He's written our first play "The Golden F**king Years" and will be appearing in it with his co-founder members next year. The company is a new venture for Adrian and comes out of his conviction that we allow ourselves to be cajoled into ageing - and behaving accordingly - when life and new challenges still stretch before us. Life should be lived not according to our age but according to what we wish to do - and find ourselves able to do
Deborah Maclaren Co-Founder And Actor
Deborah is one of the founder members of Vital Signs Productions
She trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama in the early 70s and before that, as a teenager, worked with Verity Bargate at the Soho Poly.
Deborah has worked in many theatres throughout the country including the Royal Exchange, Nottingham Playhouse, Derby Playhouse and the New Vic Stoke. She's also worked widely on the London Fringe. She has been lucky enough to work with two award winning film directors - Mike Leigh on 'Naked' and Patrice Chereau on 'Intimacy'. Most recently, Deborah has been concentrating on documentary voiceover work working with BBC4 and Channel 4. She is delighted to be part of Vital Signs Productions and the idea that older people can still be funny, sexy, badly behaved and not at all wise - sometimes.
Anneli Page Co-Founder And Actor
Anneli trained at the Poor School in her late 30’s and over the last four years has worked for The National Theatre, the BBC as well as a number of theatrical productions within London and independent feature films.
