2017bouquet of the night goes to Victoria Kempton whose cameo roles in the first and last plays, were exquisitely captured.

2015.. Kempton in particular standing out....as Viola, she's an ice queen. Her character's complete lack of empathy really is chilling...
Shona Barker 'View From The Gods'

2014Kempton is an excellent lead, drawing both innocence and worldly knowledge from her character.
Catherine Gowers Camden New Journal

2013Kempton is impressively tragic in the role and the clever use of girlish ribbons in her hair is particularly poignant.

    About me

    I am a very experienced and versatile actress having worked for many companies throughout the UK including seasons at Chichester Festtival Theatre and Theatre Clwyd. I have a good lyrical singing voice (mezzo-sopran range), and a full dance training including tap and ballroom.

    I have an excellent Southern American accent having appeared in many Tennessee Williams' short plays including Lucretia Collins in Portrait of a Madonna at Pentameters Theatre
