The Duke in Darkness

by Patrick Hamilton, Revised and adapted by Orlando Wells.

Martin is currently performing in the role of the Duke of Lamorre in Patrick Hamilton’s ‘The Duke in Darkness’.

France is in the grip of long and bloody civil wars. A Duke and his servant, incarcerated for fifteen years, plot their escape and dream of freedom. But in this world of conspiracy and paranoia, where no one is quite who they seem, what will one man sacrifice for his chance of survival?

The play runs until May 11th 2013 at London’s Tabard Theatre.

Hells Bells

by Lynne Truss, Directed by Simon Scullion, Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh Festival 2012.

Martin performed in Hell’s Bells at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012.
“A DVD of an obscure British TV costume drama is planned. The creative talents behind the abysmal Mrs Milliner assemble after 15 years to record the audio commentary. The contents warning on the box ought to read – contains intense bitterness, graphic squabbling and mild irreverence towards hats”.


“A wonderful cast make this piece a joy to experience.”
**** Three Weeks

“Martin Miller brings doe-eyed affability with a hint of steel to the beset-upon Simon who valiantly fights to make his voice heard.” The Stage

“Truss catches both the brittle affections of the stage and the disappointment of also-rans in a ruthless yet silly world.” **** The Times

Taking Steps

by Alan Ayckbourn, Oldham Coliseum, Grange Arts Centre, Oldham, 16th February to 10th March 2012.


…”a Ronnie Barker-ish wiliness from Martin Miller as the vendor”.
Oldham Evening Chronicle

The Proceedings of That Night

by Lynne Truss, Directed by Simon Scullion, Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh Festival 2011.


“It’s a short and compact little play, just thirty minutes long and with only one actor (the very good Martin Miller), but it works brilliantly.
It remains more clever than chilling – there is none of the sort of shocks you might expect from The Woman in Black – but it is an engaging piece and Miller is convincing both as the luvvy actor and the increasingly terrified victim”.
****Sans Taste

“The eerily uplit Miller’s delivery is excellent and resonantly believable, from his off-mic throat clearing and practising of intonation, to some amusing and catty backchat with his producer Lisa in the technical booth”.
***Edinburgh Festivals
…”brilliant solo performance given by Martin Miller” … “As with the best ghost stories, Miller’s wry sense of humour initially relaxes the audience and then sets them on edge”.
****What’s On Stage

Humble Boy

by Charlotte Jones, New Vic Theatre, Staffordshire, 1st April to 17th April 2010.


“Martin Miller gives a stunning interpretation of the mega-intelligent astrophysicist who has a much better understanding of black holes than personal relationships. While there are parallels between Felix and Hamlet in their bonds with their respective mothers, Felix shows a different level of profundity. Miller gives us a multi-layered performance which is at its zenith in the scenes with his overbearing mother”. British Theatre Guide
“Martin Miller makes a fine impression as Felix”. The Guardian
