"Whynot’s talented performance holds up a mirror to the audience, reflecting a little piece of society"

Geoff knew from a very early age that he had a strong connection to the world of theatre. From the age of about 5, when his mother first brought him to one of her rehearsals, he realized he’d found his place.

 Through his childhood and teenage years, he was gradually allowed to participate more and more in the backstage world of putting on a play, and learned the first principles of making theatre from the technical side of things. But it was when he stepped on stage in his first speaking role that Geoff knew his place was there, in direct relationship with the audience.
