who we are...

multi story was created in 2000 by Bill Buffery and Gill Nathanson.

As the name implies, multi story are centrally concerned with the enduring power of story - and with communicating the richness of the old stories to new audiences, both young and old.

"It is always a little dangerous to try to describe the theatrical madness that comes from Bill Buffery and Gill Nathanson - well-known for packing a good deal of complexity into their hour-long shows."
Winnipeg Free Press

BillBill Buffery both performed and directed with the Royal Shakespeare Company, was Deputy Director of the National Youth Theatre and was Artistic Director of Orchard Theatre Company for eleven years.


GillGill Nathanson trained as a Drama Teacher and worked with some of the UK's top Education and Community theatre companies before joining Orchard Theatre Company in 1989.  As well as playing leading roles with the company, she ran three Youth Theatres and an extensive workshop programme.


"Buffery's a compelling storyteller with the voice of a trained Shakespearean actor - Nathanson's his perfect match, with the liquid delivery, a supple, angular body and the expressive arms of a ballerina."
Edmonton Sun

"The two, who write and direct their own material, illuminate their chronicles with intelligence and theatricality. The approach is spare - there are no wasted movements or empty ideas. And they are marvellous actors."
