Peter Sandys-Clarke

Born in the North East of England, Peter read Drama and Theatre Arts at Birmingham University before beginning his acting career. His work has most recently included roles in GHOSTS for the BBC, MASTERS OF THE AIR for AppleTV, Ridley Scott’s NAPOLEON and numerous stage productions including PYGMALION, JOURNEY’S END and WHEN WE ARE MARRIED in the West End.


After successfully establishing himself in theatre, television and film acting - finding a particular niche in the ‘Wars and Moustaches’ market - Peter began developing work as a writer. His play, LEWIS IN WONDERLAND, played to sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and his comedy mini-series, THE CHARLES DICKENS SHOW was produced by BBC Arts. Peter researched and wrote THE VOICES OF THE SILENT SOLDIERS, a Heritage Lottery-supported commission of short films telling forgotten stories from the Great War and has also written a number of corporate films.  


Current projects include the film scripts HOMEWARD and GUITAR MAN; ICARUS FALLING, a drama series set among First World War flying aces, currently in development with American producer Bob Sallin; MINE, a Northern Drama series selected for Filmarket Hub’s Pitchbox 2021 event; RIO FUERTE, a series set in the intrigue, glamour and sweat of Mexico and Hollywood in the 1950s; THE SHANGRI LA, a series set in the London of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s; and LATE RETURN, a three act stage comedy about how a sandwich started World War One.  


Having spent nearly twenty years saying he was soon to move out of London, Peter and his family recently relocated to Oxfordshire. When he isn't writing, Peter plays a lot of cricket (with no great skill) and retreats to the wildest countryside he can reach at any opportunity.
