LAMPEDUSA

HighTide Festival & Unity Theatre, Liverpool (Link)

I was thrilled to revive my role as Denise. This time I played opposite Steven Elder as Stefano both at the HighTide Festival in Aldeburgh and then the Unity Theatre in Liverpool. Our show at the Unity was supported by a series of different community outreach pieces, including plays written in response to Lampedusa, cabaret and even an African beach party! Again, we were delighted to receive rave reviews: 4 stars: Liverpool Echo, Liverpool Sound & Vision

THE SECRET HISTORY

Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury (Link)

This play by Anders Lustgarten takes Elizabeth I’s spymaster Francis Walsingham as its subject and explores how he was the original creator of government surveillance. Directed by Justin Audibert (The Jew of Malta, RSC 2015 & Flare Path No.1 tour) we workshopped the play at Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre, culminating in a rehearsed reading. I played Elizabeth I and also Frances, Walsingham’s daughter and wife of Sir Philip Sidney.
