2016Rebecca Crankshaw is particularly impressive as Heronimo, with a raw emotion which is even more shocking against the stark backdrop.

    Additional Information

    'Kyla Frye gives a sparky, rounded performance as Shaz, excelling in the scenes with her pushy mother (an excellent Rebecca Crankshaw)... as an ensemble performance this is one of the best I've seen in a long while.' JW Arble, Remotegoat

    'Rebecca Crankshaw is excellent as her mother' Peter Lathan, The British Theatre Guide

    'Rebecca Crankshaw as Shaz's white mother...is all too touchingly real' Philippa Tatham, Fringe Report

    About me

    The last short film I appeared in, in which I played the supporting lead - Barren - won the award for Best Sci-Fi short in the Barcelona Short Film Festival last year.
