What I do – Acting in East Anglia

Covid-19

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the government request that all non-essential social contact and gatherings be avoided, productions on stage and off, are currently cancelled or postponed for the time being. As soon as I have any updates I will let you know…

If you are looking for a Norwich actor, or thereabouts, get in touch.

Still Alive

Whilst I am kept from the stage, I’ve been writing about my Norwich city Coronapocolypse adventures to keep me amused and out of mischief.

Writing

I worked on my play that never seems to end throughout June. It’s not called ‘The Play That Never Ends’. I just call it that because it feels like it has taken me a million years to write it.

I managed (not quite sure how. I may have been replaced by a robot) to turn up most mornings for the London Writer’s Salon, ‘Writer’s Hour’. With their brilliant support, along with fellow writers, I set goals for the month and planned to fully complete a draft of the second half of my play by the end of June.

I didn’t quite make it. But, in my defence, I was sent on a couple of writing side quests, and I am easily distracted at the best of times. I did get 21 pages done over three weeks though. The play is now complete and I have shelved it for a little while, to give me room so that I can come back to the editing with fresh eyes.


The Show Must go on…

Whilst theatres and cinemas were closed and quiet during lockdown, the shows went on, online for free. For the first time, theatre was inclusive and open, to everyone and anyone, regardless of class and income. If you could find acccess to a PC and internet, theatre was accessible. Opening up the wonders of theatre, musicals, opera and ballet to those who would once have been excluded. Unfortunately, as the creep back to ‘normal’ proceeds, and theatres struggle to survive in this post-covid world, most of these free shows have come to an end… If I find any, I will share them here…

I also work with filmmaking students at the Norwich University of the Arts, acting in short student films and have recorded a voiceover for a documentary style film

Diverse Background

I have been incredibly fortunate to have a diverse background in work and play, providing me with a range of skills, from working as a Paintball Marshall and playing semi-pro sup-air paintball tournaments, competing in martial arts (Shotokan and Taekwondo), working in the Special Constabulary, taking part in corporate boxing, climbing and mountain biking.

A Norwich actor, I was born in Norfolk and now perform around the East Anglian area of the UK and beyond. I started my acting career in open air theatre in the beautiful parks and green spaces of Norfolk.

I completed the Norwich Theatre Royal acting course and have also been incredibly fortunate to train with The John Wright Clowning School, Berlin’s TheatreFragile, Teatro Strappato and 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.

ExcludedUK

Reading Time: 3 minutes Well, it’s been almost seventeen weeks since the two-week quarantine began. Still no help at all forthcoming from the UK government for all those excluded from any help for lost self-employed earnings. The same government that proclaimed that we were “all in this together” and “no one will be left behind”.
