Associate Artist of Iris Theatre

My first play with Iris Theatre was when I was just out of drama school and what a beauty: Ted Hughes’ adaptation of Alcestis.  I returned to them in 2014 to work on Richard III as Lady Anne and Prince Edward and Alice Through the Looking Glass as the Mosquito and Red Queen. Now, in 2015, I will be Maria in their forthcoming production of Twelfth Night and with this I have been made an Associate Artist of the company. It is a joy and a privilege. I love the theatrical worlds the company explore and can’t help but be bewitched by the theatrical space they inhabit – that of St Paul’s, the Actor’s church in Covent Garden.  Come and see us this summer as they take over the church and it’s environs with Twelfth Night and Pinocchio.

Wicker Husband

Last month I was lucky enough to R&D a work in progress called the Wicker Husband.  Director Charlotte Westerna, adapter/writer Rhys Jennings and prolific composer/lyricist Darren have been working hard and brought in teams of performers, musicians, puppeteers to piece together what they had so far. And it was stunning. We worked at the Unicorn Theatre with some music calls at Iris Theatre’s Actor’s Church and created something very special. I have every belief that it will have a life beyond this one week because the material deserves a life of its own.

Here is a short showreel of what we did
