The epitome of “Jack of all trades – master of none”
Emma trained at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and has been working on-stage and backstage and a mix of both.
After mistakenly falling into TV for 8 years, Jess founded Theatre Deli to keep the dream alive. She can't remember what that dream was anymore but in the meantime has built some highly transferrable skills that include vaguely understanding electrical voltage, toilet ratios, and how to effectively sweep water from flooded roofs. The latter might have been an immersive theatre piece but she's no longer sure of where reality lies so has mainly learned to enthusiastically join in with everything on the assumption at some point there will be a bar.

Peter’s finest achievements at Theatre Deli are opening a bottle of wine with a drill and a screw and opening a multipurpose arts and community hub in the middle of London’s busy finance district - also with a drill and a screw, and an awesome team doing most of the work. Peter also co-directs Les Foules Theatre, plays shortstop for the London Mammoths, and keeps rhythm with Erik Wellington & The Junkers.

Danielle grew up on an island in the West Coast of Canada. She got a degree in theatre, moved to Korea for a year and developed a love of bibimbap and Korean saunas. Post-Korea, she moved to London on a working holiday visa, eventually convinced Theatre Deli to keep her in the country & now she's just generally living the dream.
