Ian Pike

Born in Southern Africa, I now live in the United Kingdom. I have worked professionally as an actor, a comedian, a voice over artist, an IB examiner, a university lecturer, a writer of children’s books, a director and producer.

Mostly though I have been a freelance scriptwriter. I am currently working full time for The International School’s Theatre Association (ISTA) as the Assistant Director. I have been an ISTA artist for over 24 years, was on the board of trustees for ten years and served as vice-president. I am unbelievably proud to be an honorary life member.

I have been lucky enough to have worked with so many amazing young people across the world. I have been to most corners of the globe to work in schools, both with students and their teachers and still find everyone involved in International education utterly inspirational. I love bringing my work in comedy and TV drama into the theatre and the classroom and seeing what happens.
