11th February 2020
I am very sleepy this evening, following an afternoon of rehearsals for a scene from a short film that will be shot in Norwich in March 2020.
I am far more accustomed to theatre than film and analysing the dialogue of stage scripts, rather than the descriptive visuality of a screenplay. So, it was immensely helpful to meet up with the director and fellow actors to run our scene.
Such a wonderful project too, as I am working with student filmmakers, Edward Heredia and Paige Fisher, from our very own Norwich University of the Arts. I have worked with Edward from the beginning to the end of his course. Such a deeply thoughtful, reflective and professional Director who I am sure will go far when he graduates uni.
A work in progress, I have recently been putting my past performance photographs into slideshows. I am uploading them all onto my Youtube Channel as and when I finish producing them. Also viewable via my Facebook page.
Chips with Everything
Chips with Everything by Arnold Wesker coming soon to the The Maddermarket Theatre. With Marie Cooper as the Flight Sergeant and PT Instructor.
Chips with Everything is the story of Pip, a conscript in the Royal Air Force, who, despite his relatively priviledged upbringing, wants to be treated no differently to his fellow airmen.
Originally premiered in the West end in 1967, this staging of the play, being directed by Jen Dewsbury, is unusual in that the cast of twenty actors will be played entirely by women.
Showing from the 19th – 27th June 2020, Tickets can be booked now via the Maddermarket Theatre website with discounted Early Bird tickets available for only £9.95 if booked by 24th April 2020.

The Literary Consultancy Free Read
In 2018 I diversified from being not only a person who acts, and being paid as a professional actor, but I also (reluctantly at first) branched out into writing for the first time in a long time.
It turned out to be a good diversion from performing. All of the hard work of research and writing paid off, when I was finally able to announce that I had been chosen by the National Centre of Writing as a winner of an Arts Council East funded TLC Free Read by The Literary Consultancy … read more

A Norwich actor and performer working predominantly in East Anglia, I started my acting career in open air theatre in the beautiful parks and green spaces of Norfolk. I have been very lucky to perform in a wide range of roles and I have even been known to occasionally make it as far as London.
I completed the Norwich Theatre Royal acting course and have since been fortunate to train with The John Wright Clowning School, Berlin’s TheatreFragile and have had voice and movement training with the Royal Shakespeare Company. I completed my Master’s degree in Creative Entrepreneurship at the University of East Anglia in Norwich in 2018.
