New York actor, theatre technical director and cinematographer, Jack Gilliat, founded Whistleblower.
Jack’s ‘Eye of a Fly Productions’ formed Whistleblower as its theatrical arm.
Jack Gilliat is a classically-trained actor, screenwriter and playwright; self-shooting director, theatre technical designer and cinematographer, who has travelled the world gathering inspiration for his many projects.
He was the Technical Designer for the critically-acclaimed ‘The Hundred We Are’ off-Broadway, produced by Origin Theatre Company at The Cell Theatre in New York City. He was also the technical designer for the Whistleblower off-Broadway production ‘Echoes of Ebola’ (as well as a lead actor), and he also designed and built the set for ‘Fabuloso’ which premiered on Theatre Row in July 2016, in which he also played a lead role. His latest position as Technical Director was on Origin Theatre’s ‘Poison’ at Theatre Row, which Jack returned to for Whistleblower’s most recent production, ‘The Land of Cheesecake and Ice Cream’ from February 9th to 12th 2017.
Jack played Oscar Wilde in Origin Theatre’s ‘Wilde at Home’ as part of the 1st Irish Festival 2016, for which he won a Fringe Award, and also lent his technical design skills to a number of other productions in that same festival.
He is aiming to bring a fresh, political, controversial, innovative approach to his particular slice of New York theatre.
