    Additional Skills

    Experienced in Vocal and Communications skills coaching to non-actors - courses or individual sessions offered to wide range of professional groups. Whilst Artistic Director at MYPT I commissioned several plays for audiences under five and toured these productions locally, nationally and internationally. Have been a regular attender at ASSITEJ international YPT festivals in Italy, France and Denmark.

    Additional Information

    Returned to the business after thirteen years absence whilst raising family - hence gap in credits! Full c.v. available - sample of credits listed.

    'Not Parson's Green' - Tour currently in preparation. One woman show about the writing and character of Stevie Smith. This is not the Hugh Whitemore script. Lasts one hour. Suitable for libraries, universities, sixth form student groups and any small venues. This show was tried out and was well received on March 27th in a meeting room at the Metropolitan Cathedral, Liverpool.

    About me

    Trained at RADA. Native accent is London/Standard English - sound a lot more upper middleclass than I am! Proficient in many other dialects.

    Very strong oprano singer with range of over two octaves - bottom G to top B flat.

    Slim and athletic - cyclist.

    Experienced YPT dirctor - interested in plays written for audiences of under five - still a somewhat underexplored and valued genre in the UK.
