Career and Shows

Well, I guess it has to be the wonderfully written ‘Miss Chasum’. She was a comedy character with extreme vocal and movement potential. I had such fun playing this role. I was able to totally flex my comedic muscles. Good fun – ‘Comic Potential’!

Working every day with the incomparable Sir Alan Ayckbourn. He’s a genius and a gentleman. I loved being in the rehearsal room with him or simply sitting in the bar having a chat. A real honour!
