Who we are

martin harris

CEO & Creative Director

Martin is the founder of Unleashed and has worked in professional theatre, as a voice over artist and on television throughout his life. Having worked as a street pastor for many years, in 2014, he was concerned about the noticeable rise in the numbers of homeless people, and began to volunteer at the Leonard Stocks Homeless Centre. Here, he ran drama workshops to help build self-confidence and teach interview skills to those who had recently come off the streets. A short time later, Martin was able to secure funding for a regular venue for workshops, and the first offshoot of the Theatre Company was born, Unleashed Community Drama.

Paul Martin

Finance & Operations Manager

Having previously been involved with Unleashed as a performer, Paul joined as an employee in 2020 following financial support from The National Lottery – Reaching Communities Fund. Initially an administration role, his position has now grown to include all non creative aspects of the charity. Paul has a background in history, having completed a Masters Degree at Plymouth University and is looking forward to watching the redevelopment of the The Royal Lyceum Theatre.
