Joe Hassan as 

Richard Ratcliffe

Joe has performed in a diverse range of roles, genres and mediums. After graduating from Wessex Academy of Performing Arts he created his own theatre company and toured two sell-out shows around the South West of England. After taking some time to see the world he came back with a fire within to create work that he was proud of. Be it comedy, experimental or real life stories, Joe enjoys the challenge each new role throws at him.
He was delighted to be offered the role of Richard in this production of Nazanin’s Story and hopes he can do it justice whilst helping to create awareness of the complete injustice that is still going on to this day.
