I am a creative, versatile and witty actress based in Southsea, Hampshire.


I have performed for many companies including: York Theatre Royal, Hull Truck Theatre, the Tobacco Factory, Bristol and Proteus Theatre Company, Basingstoke. I have extensive experience in small scale and rural touring and devising new theatre.

I also perform character based Street Theatre for the Natural Theatre Company (Bath) both in the UK and abroad. I am represented by Nelson Browne Management.

This Autumn I am really excited to be performing for New Old Friends in 'Crimes on the Coast'. Rehearsals start soon, so watch this space for photos from the show. Meanwhile tickets are already on sale at venues across the UK, from Dumfries to Ilfracombe. Look here to see if we are coming near you? 


Crimes on the Coast

A secluded island hotel just off the English coast becomes a crime scene, as a scandal-inducing femme-fatale is felled. All the guests on the island are suspects, but are they alone and is all quite what it seems?

Multi-award-winning theatre company New Old Friends present Crimes On the Coast, a comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (Associate Director -The 39 Steps, West End).

The show enjoyed a sell-out national tour in 2018 (under previous title Crimes Under the Sun) and hits the road again in 2019 featuring four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style.

Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and PG Wodehouse, you are invited on an hilarious butmurderous trip to a classic English Riviera retreat.
