    Improvisation Movie Magic makers Very Serious People are now sporting a new member. A short, blonde, Welsh member… That’s right, me! I’ll be joining them for the foreseeable future as we make up brand new blockbuster movies in front of live audiences using their suggestions. We’re also concentrating on new show formats so look out […]

  • Baroque to the Future

    Posted on May 1, 2016 by in Blog

    That’s not even my favourite pun of the night – there were so many! This week I dashed over to the Victoria and Albert Museum (will those two NEVER leave me alone?) to do a bit of stand up and present thrilling entertainers to King Louis 16th and Marie Antoinette in the new European Gallery. […]

  • Reviews – Victorian and Gay – The Hope Theatre

    Posted on December 19, 2015 by in Blog

      I’d been having an amazing time rehearsing for the excitingly long run of ‘Victorian and Gay’ over at the fabulous Hope Theatre in Islington. I didn’t think it could get much better than dashing from my various day jobs to evening rehearsals in corsets and practice skirts… how wrong I was! We’re currently halfway […]

  • Graduating Production – Children in Uniform

    Posted on July 19, 2015 by in Blog

      16th-17th July in the Tristan Bates Theatre. Directed by Peter Craze.   With an exceptionally long rehearsal period (4 whole weeks!) this was probably the most preparation time I’ll ever be given before a performance. I had two small roles within the 1931 Christa Winslowe play ‘Children in Uniform’. I played the uptight yet […]

  • Ensemble Production – Antigone

    Posted on July 6, 2015 by in Blog

      On 15th and 17th June, I performed as the Messenger in Antigone directed by the wonderful Brendan¬†Murray at the New Diorama Theatre.   Having never been in a Greek Tragedy before, this was a steep learning curve. There were lots of tears, lots of poetic bad news and a LOT of new names with […]

  • Restoration Comedy at Drama Studio London

    Posted on March 31, 2015 by in Blog

    I’ve been looking forward to the Restoration Comedy block since I confirmed my place at Drama Studio London. It’s a genre I’ve always admired from a distance and I’ll admit I’ve drooled over the idea of those beautiful dresses, so when the time finally came to take my turn at Restoration, I grabbed it with […]

  • Dick Whittington – Bow Bells

    Posted on December 13, 2014 by in Blog

      WOW!   What a fortnight it’s been! I’ve hardly had time (or room) to breathe, I’m reeling from all the shouts of children still ringing in my ears and there’s glitter all over my flat. I couldn’t be happier! I was cast as Bow Bells the Fairy in Dick Whittington, one of three Pantomimes […]
