BBC RADIO 4: The Good Terrorist
Last month I went in to record for my first BBC Radio 4 drama directed by the amazing Emma Harding (who is also ex-Drama Studio London!) and got to meet Sarah Daniels who adapted the Doris Lessing novel ‘The Good Terrorist’ for the radio. It’s a 10 part series which is due to air in Feb 2018. Absolute dream to work opposite yet another ex-DSL student – the fantastic Olivia Vinall! Here’s a picture of us having a lovely time.
DOWN TO A SUNLESS SEA
Just before going to the BBC, I played the role of ‘Narrator’ in Maartens Lourens’ darkly comic dystopian ‘Down To A Sunless Sea’ book launch at Hackney House, in which the audience were lead through the ‘eggplant’ and into the depths of Lord Blackmore’s lair. It was an incredible experience and great to dress like a tudor for it! The book is available now to purchase and I would highly recommend it.
THE FEMALE GAZE: VOLUME 3 SPELLBOUND
Following meeting one half of the incredibly inspiring Rich Creatives theatre company during the Down To A Sunless sea experience, I came on board to play Fran in Rachel Salisbury’s ‘Mooncalves’, which premiered at the Cockpit Theatre last month. It was a sell-out event and our piece received a fantastic review from West End Wilma, noting how “this was a particular stand-out script for me, and received a very strong reaction from an engaged audience, particularly because of the high energy and quality of acting” (WEST END WILMA)
And lastly, but by no means least, on Monday this week I was given the opportunity (/challenge) to learn a Scottish accent over the weekend ready to record for a new radio podcast entitled THE WALK, directed by the fantastic Carl Prekopp (who was my BBC Carleton Hobbs radio coach), and also starring native and beautiful Scot Tracy Wiles (who was also my BBC Carleton Hobbs radio coach!) – what a dream!
