Founder - Ed Greenberg

Founder of Beyond The Bar Ed Greenberg

ED GREENBERG is a professional actor turned director.

He is a first-class graduate of both the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art (now known as the Central School of Speech and Drama) and the University of Central Lancashire and maintained a successful, wide and varied acting career before adapting his skills to become a director.

He has been seen around the country in some of the UK's most prestigious theatres and has portrayed some of theatre's most passionate and intense characters, including Shakespeare's Romeo (Romeo & Juliet) and Petruchio (Taming of the Shrew), Christopher Marlowe's Mephistopheles (Dr Faustus) and Ibsen's Karsten Bernick (Pillars of Society).

Ed is also the co-founder of the Theatre Group 'In Yer Space' which makes regular, successful, appearances at festivals around the country, including the Edinburgh Fringe, Buxton, Keswick and The Isle of Man.

Ed now predominantly works as an independent film producer and director after founding his production company BEYOND THE BAR, in 2008, which continues to go from strength to strength.

Creating narratives steeped in psychology and mystery, Ed has been recognised as a new, independent voice in the film world. Equated to ‘a modern day Buñuel,’ his films possess an original vision and style of storytelling which The Times Newspaper described as ‘Beautifully crafted... a tour de force of emotion”.

Ed also offers private tuition on Audition Technique and is a guest lecturer at various venues around the country, running workshops on Acting for the Camera Techniques and Filmmaking.
