Abdiel’s stage work on four continents includes most of the leading Shakespearean roles, including Hamlet, Richard III, Oberon, and Malvolio. He has also led acting companies in Shakespeare Reveries, an improvised show using Shakespeare’s texts. In modern plays, his credits range from Harold in Orphans to Norman in Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy, Table Manners.
Meanwhile, Abdiel’s one-man shows include Kenneth Graham’s Wind in the Willows, and monologues from W.H. Auden’s The Sea and the Mirror and The Massacre of the Innocents. These pieces rely on his wide range of characters and accents, a skill he also brings to his voiceover work and dramatic readings for audio books, including his own.
