Actor & Director

"Worth the ticket price for Furlong alone." Don Juan - Fairypowdered

A press article published about David Furlong in National newspaper, Le Mauricien.

I trained as an actor in Paris National Theatre of Chaillot. A versatile stage, screen and street performer I have acted extensively over a 20 years career in France and London, in plays, films, street theatre and devised pieces.

As a director I established my company, Exchange Theatre, in 2006, and have been its artistic director and producer since then. In freelance, I was assistant director at the Royal Opera House and YOUNG VIC Jerwood director in 2020.


David just finished the summer run of THE WIND AND THE RAIN at the Finborough Theatre. 

He's currently touring as the Mad Hatter for ALICE AT THE ASYLUM with Theatre Lab Company.

He's about to direct DRAINING THE SWAMP for David Rowland Hill Productions
