William Forster

We were saddened to hear of the recent passing of graduate Will Forster on Wednesday 10 August.

Will graduated from our BA (Hons) Directing programme in 2008 and worked on numerous theatre and film productions. 

In 2007 Will founded the theatre company Rose Theatrical of London Limited. This was rebranded in 2010 to Inglenook Productions, where he was Artistic Director. Credits include the 2010 award-winning short film Roses In Winter.

Colin Ellwood, who was Will’s Programme Director said;

“Will was a very talented director with great energy and who showed great fortitude and positivity in dealing with the ongoing difficulties of his Cystic Fibrosis condition.” 

William’s funeral will take place on Friday 26th August 2016 at 3:20pm at Crewe Crematorium, followed by drinks and cakes at Crewe Lyceum Theatre. The dress code for the funeral - Express yourself. 

There will be only family flowers, but donations are welcome to the Manchester cystic fibrosis ward who looked after Wills in his adult years. Please click here to donate via Just Giving. Alternatively, Cheques can be payable to “Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Charitable Fund”.

Our thoughts are with his partner Carly and his friends, family and colleagues at Inglenook Productions.
