Actor. Writer. Theatre-maker. Panic MA-er. Yoga teacher. Sapling activist. During lockdown, in an unexpected homage to one of Allison Janney's finest performances, I was a secondary school librarian - extraordinary times.
I was educated at The Royal Masonic School for Girls and Uppingham School, read English at UCL, joined the remarkable Oval House Youth Theatre, trained at The Poor School (while working in publishing), and studied Clown with Philippe Gaulier in the outskirts of Paris. I love a course and have had joyful, informative, times at Yale, The Second City, RADA, and the National Univerity of Ireland, Galway. In 2019, I gave a lecture on The Witch In (and just outside) Irish Drama at The University of Tübingen, Germany.
Theatre includes: The Merchant of Venice (Cockpit Theatre); The Case of the Crushed Petunias (Hen & Chickens); Joan of the Mississippi (Camden Peoples’ Theatre); Obviously We Only Want the Best For Our Daughter (Paines Plough Roundabout); Medea (Riverside Studios); The Judas Kiss (US, Duke of York’s, West End,).
Television and Film includes: The Eternal Return (Michelle Williams Gamaker) Winner of the Jarman Prize 2020; Teresa v Boris (BBC2); The Fruit Is There To Be Eaten (Studio MWG); Captain Webb (Marathon Films); Love Me Till Monday (Justin Hardy Pictures).
Please see Works for my solo shows. I'm a co-founder of the sketch collective, The Beautiful Idiots, and practise improvisation comedy with the Free Association. I'm also a member of the excellent Clerkenwell Actors Studio and perform cue-scripted Shakespeare plays with Shake-scene Shakespeare. I am honoured to be a member of the Town Hall Theatre Playwrights Group 2021 led by Christian O'Reilly.
