2019Several cast members certainly embraced the potential for humour within the sketches and generated much laughter from the audience.

    About me

    My name is Beth Westbrook, and I have just finished my final year studying Theatre and Performance Practice at the University of Salford, and I am an actor and writer.

    I am a strong comedy actor, as well as a comedy writer. One of my highlights from university was performing at the Edinburgh Fringe festival as part of SalFunni, where I wrote and performed sketches. I love Fringe Theatre and would love to do more of it, and create my own fringe shows. I even went on The Chase last year to try and fund a run at the Edinburgh Fringe (I didn’t win any money, but Bradley Walsh is lovely).

    I wrote a one woman dramedy show, Sunny Girl, about a young woman being diagnosed with autism, which I hope to tour and perform once I am able to.

    One of the main goals I have for my career is to improve the representation of autism (which is quite a big goal for one person), but I am an autistic actress, and I can play autistic, and non-autistic parts. I’m aware I don’t fulfil the autistic stereotype, and I don’t want to, I want to show that there are autistic women, and I want my work to go against the autistic stereotype. I’ve only recently become a part of DANC (Disabled Artists Networking Community), but I’ve already learnt so much from them, and how to embrace being an autistic performer, and change people’s perceptions of autism from the inside.

    I’ve been writing for around 2 years, and I’ve also been accepted onto the writing squad, and I was longlisted for a Funny Women award last year, and my ideal career would have me be able to create and produce my own work.
