Early life and career

Tarrant was born in 1952 in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, and studied for a degree in English and Drama at Exeter University,[1] then at the cutting edge of dramaturgy. He briefly worked as a teacher before taking up acting, first at the Northcott Theatre Exeter and then with Medium Fair Community Theatre Company, Exeter 1975-7 (a company developed from the university drama department).
