Hearty thanks to all who contributed to the 2018 Looking For Lightning Go Fund Me Campaign or attended Looking For Lightning at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. 

The show touched many and motivated more than imagined to take positive action in their lives.

Through contributions raised, Looking For Lightning has donated £1220 to the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic and will donate a minimum of $1500 to the Bellur Trust in South India after final production expenses.

McLean studied acting under the legendary Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City.  Meisner’s influence helped refine Garth’s determination to rout out the truth of the human condition with rigorous honesty and humor.  While in NY, Garth worked off and off-off Broadway.

Garth currently enjoys teaching yoga and kicking around Hollywood, where as a professional actor he garners work in film, tv, commercials and the stage.


Determined to help enable others deal with whatever challenges life can present, Looking For Lightning has been Garth’s ongoing project of passion. Garth last performed Lightning at Stuart Rogers Studios in Los Angeles in 2016. He is thrilled to be working with Kerrie again and Brent on the next incarnation of the show.
