After Quebec, Geraint moved on England where he played the lead in "The Last Englishman". He then spent 2 seasons with Wales' leading theatre company, Theatre Clwyd, touring the United Kingdom in "Enemy of the People" and "Hamlet". It was his performance in "Hamlet" that led to the Regional Theatre Best Actor Award. He then spent a season with the Chichester Festival doing "Henry VIII". He has performed at the Shaw Festival and the Stratford Festival of Canada as well as the Mark Taper Forum, Lincoln Center. He has appeared in such plays as "The Music Cure", "Candida", "Cyrano de Bergerac", "The Vortex", "Goodnight Disgrace", "Henry V" and "The Three Musketeers, "The Boys from Syracuse, "Sleuth" and "The Taming of The Shrew", "Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde", "My Fair Lady" and "King Lear". In August of '99, Geraint starred in a one man show written by the late Leon Pownall called "An Evening with Dylan Thomas" at the Atlantic Theatre Festival in Nova Scotia, Canada.
