How the Light Gets In



My first solo show, The Haunted Moustache, won awards for 'Best Comedy,' and 'Outstanding Theatre' and a Sony Award for 'Best Feature' on BBC Radio 3.

I also co-created Sing-along-a-Wickerman with fellow musician Eliza Skelton, which has toured the UK extensively. We have even performed it alongside The Wickerman's director Robin Hardy who loved the show. 

The No.9 Bus to Utopia came next, which continues to tour. The No.9 has also been a TEDx talk, a book with a BBC Radio 3 programme, a podcast comedy-drama series and a five-part YouTube series. 

The Cult of Water premiered in the Brighton Festival in May, 2018. It is a psychogeogrphical journey up the River Don, back in time to explore our relationship with waterways, river deities and rituals. It also features the voice of Alan Moore.



David Bramwell’s tireless search for Utopia sounds like a Boy’s Own adventure. That he manages to convey his travel tales, thoughts and experiences and keep his audience engaged and entertained is quite a feat. He carries it off with natural charm, fluency and wit. It’s lovely storytelling; not rambling and not patronising to the communities he visits It has the zeal of a real enthusiast for alternative ways of living and is well directed, with a natural feel for the subject matter and an eye for a visual joke by Emma Kilbey.
— Lisa Wolfe, Total Theatre
Bramwell’s search for the story behind his artefact takes the audience on a colourful tour around Britain that is never patronising or of guilty giving too much away. When narrating his wild experiences Bramwell has the control of a competent ringmaster. Quite excellent. A monologue that keeps you fascinated until the very end. Go and see the Haunted Moustache without further ado.
— Ashby Lennard, Broadway Baby
A touching two-acter that never loses momentum or interest. Intelligent, witty, literary and well observed, the time flew. A five star show to watch more than once.
