The bug bit pretty early. I rushed home in great excitement when I was five to tell my parents I was going to be ‘townspeople’ in the school play.
I’ve done a wide range of acting work in a variety of venues, including Shakespeare in a shopping centre, comedy on a plane and storytelling in a toilet. For reviews of my solo show ‘Cheer Up, It Might Never Happen’ at The Nightingale, Brighton and The Camden People’s Theatre, London,click here. I also performed regularly with The Black Sheep, including Holy Days at the Soho and FairLy Tales at the Lyric Hammersmith and Edinburgh 2002.
As an improviser, I co-founded Fluxx which presented character-led long-form work, performing nationally and internationally. I created the children’s show The Quest!, which premiered at Warwick Arts Centre as part of Shifti and was programmed for The Hackney Empire Spice Festival (2006). It was then performed in Pennsylvania with an American cast. See ‘The Quest Improv’ page on Facebook.
