Anthony Lawton has acted professionally since 1992.

He has performed in over 100 professional productions, and has experience in film and television.


In 1998, he started the Mirror Theatre Company, which performs solo and small-cast plays.

The mission of the Mirror is: Spiritual Theatre for a Secular Audience.
