2015If anyone else deserves a special mention it’s probably Dakin...the most enjoyable and entertaining person on the stage.
Fran Slater

2015A focused and persuasive performance. Dakin’s Betty is complex, judgemental and passionate, filled with self-doubt and inner conflict.

    Winner of the Lost One Act Festival Award for my performance in the one woman play Back Seat Betty 2015.

    "The performance by Joanne Dakin is exceptional. Dakin's Betty is proud, pragmatic and presents a dominating and surprisingly physical stage presence but when the mood of the piece changes, we are almost too frightened to look away in case she pounces. Gripping stuff!" Paul Vale on Back Seat Betty (reviewer for The Stage).

    Full clean driving licence held for 20 plus years, willing to travel for castings and work.

    Specialises in comedy and Northern drama.
