    Additional Information

    REVIEWS:

    KING LEAR - 2B THEATRE - Fight Choreographer

    "The fights are brilliantly done and the scene where Cornwall (Gary Keane) plucks out Gloucester's (David Hawley) eye and Regan (Kaitlin Howard) sticks a lighted fag in the other is a joy."

    Alan Geary, Nottingham Evening Post, February 2009

    LES MISERABLES LE PANTO! - ODDSOCKS PRODUCTIONS - Fight Choreographer

    "The fight scenes, choreographed by Kaitlin Howard, were stunning."

    Julia Pattison, The Pocklington Post, December 2008

    KILLER JOE - THE COMEDIAN'S THEATRE COMPANY - Fight Choreographer

    "So far, so amoral. It's when things don't go quite to plan that it all gets a little nasty. It's the final ten minutes or so that are leading to some people making a rapid early exit. Following a shockingly realistic beating comes the bloodbath that makes Hamlet look like a vicarage tea party."

    Victor Hallett, OnstageScotland, August 2007
