I am now currently residing in Melbourne and looking to get involved with any projects here both as a writer and performer.

Thank you for the good times in Perth, I will keep in touch and be back most likely. I met some amazing actors, playwrights and directors, and have been inspired to write and to advance myself. An audition with Black Swan State Theatre Company was a great experience and so good to get back to my roots of theatre, I am now looking to advance in my screen work as well as continuing to write and develop my existing works.

Here is my latest showreel - Clips from Australia will be coming soon!

I am an English Actor and writer, I have been in Australia for 3 years and I am now a Permanent Resident living in Melbourne.


RECENT HISTORY

I have lived in Western Australia and worked at Faraway Bay as the Events Coordinator and Manager. Here I have advanced my cooking skills, and have qualified as a Skipper and tour guide. I am proud to still be working with the company as we have just won our second consecutive award from WA Tourism as "Most Unique Accommodation" in the state. Please see my Faraway Bay page for further details on this.


BIO

I am originally from Blackburn, Lancashire in England.

I studied Contemporary Theatre and Performance at Manchester Metropolitan University.

During this time, I studied many different practitioners of theatre as well as reading a variety of approaches and plays. On the course we wrote and devised our own work. We worked as an ensemble, developing our performance, and theatre making skills.

 In our second year we devised and self funded taking a production to the Edinburgh Fringe Theatre Festival with our show The Tango (How to do). 

In third year I focused on Physical Theatre, looking at the work of Grotowski and Gardzienice.

After university, I joined an Italian Theatre company ACLE THEATRINO and toured with them as an actress and then also contributing as a writer and director to the company.

On completion of this I moved to Manchester.  In Manchester I joined various organizations and classes to improve and network with other creative’s

I have performed in many productions which can be found listed on my CV and further details on each production can be found on here as well as reviews. I have performed across the North West, London and even the USA.

I have always been a keen writer and I love working on scripts and devising and creating my own work.


WRITING

My most recent project was with my writing group, Stages WA as part of the Fremantle Arts Festival. This was developing my latest writing "Why didn't you call me Nicola?" I am hoping to premier this soon as well as continuing my work on my first play Digging Deep.


Digging Deep premiered in Manchester in 2013 and in Australia at Fringe World in 2014. 

Based on experiences from working in Role play as victims for the police, this is an insight to what happens behind closed doors.


A hard hitting and intimate play following the reconnection of Lucy, a seemingly successful nurse, and Ann, an unsuccessful emotional wreck.

The characters face self-doubt, guilt, anger, blame, isolation, powerlessness and the enormous courage needed to confront the past in an incredibly honest and sensitive way. See further information at http://diggingdeep1.webs.com
