New year, new Roughshod

Happy New Year, and welcome to 2014.

As is a customary part of Riding Light’s January, we have a new Roughshod Company about to start devising, preparing and rehearsing a new show for 2014. They’ll be on tour for 6 months from the end of February to August 2014, so Roughshod are always our longest running, widest reaching project each year, taking theatre to places where it’s rarely seen but often loved.

There will be more info about the show soon, but first we’ll let them introduce themselves…


Daniel Falber

 “I plan to have the time of my life with Roughshod! For almost a year I’ve felt God pulling me towards the company. I’m fresh out of Sixth-Form, full of energy, and ready for what will undoubtedly be a poignant and life-changing experience. I’ve dedicated a big chunk of my life to charity work, including trips to Africa and the regular raising of funds for organisations close to my heart.

I am excited about the friendships I’m going to make, the challenges I’m going to face and the people I’m going to share God’s love with.”



Hannah Blofield

“I am feeling unbelievably blessed at being given this opportunity to be part of Roughshod as it means that I get the chance to join together my passion for Christ and love of acting.

I have just graduated with a BA (Hons) in Acting from the University of Northampton, School of the Arts and I am looking forward to putting what I have learnt over the last three years into practice. I am especially excited by all the new things I will discover and experience throughout my time with Roughshod from everyone that we meet along the way.”



Chris Thacker

“I’ve had an amazing couple of years and am very grateful to God for what He has given me.  After training for a Masters in Acting and working for 18 months as an Actor in Residence for a school in Cambridgeshire, I now look forward to spending time with Riding Lights and Roughshod.  I’m looking forward to using the gifts that God has given me, in a way that I love.

I’m particularly excited about bringing theatre to people who many not normally get a chance to experience it, and sharing my faith with people in a way that they may not normally expect.  I’m keen to meet and work with new people, make new friends and learn new skills.”


Hannah Johnson

“God is good! Don’t think it has sunk in yet that I will be touring the UK with God’s message and his people! I now have a degree in Performing Arts and am excited to be using my skills for such a project. It’s going to be a great year and I believe God has great things in store for the team. God’s plans exceed our own and I have been so blessed to have this opportunity given to me. I am certain God will use my love of performing.

In fact, if you’ve caught either of our Christmas shows you’ll have met at least one of them as Hannah J has been touring with Only 80 Miles to Christmas! and both Chris and Hannah B have been on the road with Goose Chase.”
