At Nextfest 2017 Andrew is ecstatic to be directing the world premiere of Everyone We Know Will Be There: A House Party in One Act by Elena Belyea & performing in his first ever solo show Assist Ed. Andrew has been involved with Nextfest since 2007 (he thinks) and counts it among his favourite festivals in the world!
