Thomas De Angelis
Thomas is a writer and theatre-maker based in Sydney. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Arts in 2014. After a brief career in the legal profession, he came to NIDA to study playwriting. His passion has always been the creative arts: Thomas won the City Of Sydney under-sevens verse-speaking Eisteddfod at the age of four (the youngest winner ever), and he directed his first show when he was in Year 10 at St Ignatius’ College, Riverview. Thomas has an Associate Diploma in Speech and Drama from Trinity College, London. He is an occasional lecturer at the University of Sydney in Creativity and Teacher Artistry. He also has written and independently produced his own plays, including Jack Killed Jack, which was performed as part of the 2012 Sydney Fringe Festival, and The Worst Kept Secrets, which played at the Seymour Centre’s Reginald Theatre in 2014.
