About me

I am currently rehearsing for Talk Tonight, directed by Mark Bowsher, which will be performed at the Cockpit Theatre, Marylebone on 4th March 2013.

I graduated from Rose Bruford College with a first class degree in American Theatre Arts. During my time at Rose Bruford, I focussed on acting as well as dramaturgy and socially inclusive art, and as a result am currently in the early stages of developing my own theatre company, The Devil in Blue, whose focus is investigating female mental health issues onstage. We are just in the process of putting together our first piece, a verbatim piece from interviews with patients, families, friends and professionals working in the mental heath service.

As a part of my BA, I spent a year as a theatre major at St. Mary's University of Minnesota, USA, during which time I performed in two main stage performances, performed in a controversial student led production of Caryl Churchill's 'Seven Jewish Children' (as well as other student led work), hosted a large campus variety show and performed in several cabaret style acts for various campus organised performances. Whilst in Minnesota, I also acted as a drama facilitator for a state level one-act play festival and volunteered for a community inclusion project, providing performance training for adults with special educational and physical needs.

Throughout 2012 I gained experience in Restorative Justice and was commissioned to create a piece of theatre for use in Restorative Justice training by Kent Youth Offending Service.

Additional Information

I am embarking on a new adventure in an attempt to develop my skills within social and community theatre further by undertaking my PGCE in Post Compulsory Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, teaching drama and literacy. As part of this course, I am working as a Director at the Miskin Theatre, and will be conducting a research project on transformative drama education and female offenders.
