    "engaging performance by Ava Hunt...Theatre can help ensure that those suffering injustice are not isolated. The solidarity of those inside Palestine and those beyond make sure that those wanting change are not acting alone." British Theatre Guide:

    About me

    I have worked as an actor for 38 years in theatre, film, TV, commercials, role play, radio, presenting, voice overs, new writing and the corporate sector.

    I continue to stretch myself as a performer, physically, emotionally and vocally and remain in training developing new skills and working with new companies/directors.

    I have also worked as a facilitator in a wide range of settings including young offenders, prisons, community groups, schools, colleges and HE.
