Oliver Wickham is a non-binary performer who is soon to open in Michael Grandage’s ORLANDO at the Garrick Theatre as understudy to the titular role, played by Emma Corrin.

Previous to this, they recently completed shooting on upcoming Netflix series WEDNESDAY and BBC/Amazon Prime thriller CHLOE playing the role of Bea.

Oliver played Malcolm in MACBETH at Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch followed by a UK Tour. They performed as part of the cast of EITHER by Ruby Thomas at Hampstead Theatre and played Fish in Zoe Cooper’s OUT OF WATER at the Orange Tree Theatre, for which they received an Offie nomination for Best Performance.

Oliver also took part in Reading Rep’s rehearsed readings of LOCKER ROOM TALK by Gary McNair and SAFE by Alexis Gregory. In 2018, Oliver played Eloisa Sabartes in DOCTORS (BBC), and Jo in BROOD, a queer webseries written by Rosanna Suppa and Robbie Taylor-Hunt, available on YouTube.

In their final year at Cambridge University, Oliver played Juliet in Shakespeare’s ROMEO & JULIET directed by Tom Littler, at the Cambridge Arts Theatre, and directed Melissa Bubnic’s BOYS WILL BE BOYS at the ADC Theatre. In 2017, Oliver played Anna of Cleves in the original cast of SIX THE MUSICAL in its sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Esmer-Younga in the Footlights Pantomime: THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME.

Oliver also co-wrote (co. Robbie Taylor-Hunt) and performed in A Queer Anthology of Dating at Southwark Playhouse, as part of the Anon Is A Woman festival of new writing (2018), and again as part of Maiden Speech Festival II at Tristan Bates Theatre in 2019. Oliver recently spoke on ‘The New Normal’ panel, led by Christopher Kenna (CEO of Brand Advance), discussing LGBTQIA+ representation in media and advertising and on the ‘Binaries and Beyond’ panel held at Tristan Bates Theatre as part of Maiden Speech Festival III. They continue to write and advocate for non-binary people in the arts and will soon be recognised at the Offies 2020 ceremony, as their nomination was the catalyst for merging the male/female performance categories into a more inclusive single, non-gendered category.
