Turning Leaves comes to Oxford

Turning Leaves @ Old Fire Station by

I was so excited to be reunited with my brilliant TURNING LEAVES team for a one off performance of the show in beautiful Oxford, at the Old Fire Station Theatre.  Oxford is a city that will always be very special to me as I spent a lot of time there filming feature film THE BUTTERFLY TATTOO several years ago, so it was fantastic to go back to the very place where I auditioned for the film.  We sold really well and the play was very well received.  Fortunately the very talented Ian Wallman of IWPhotographic was able to capture some production stills for us – thank you Ian!

I’m currently the face of the womenswear division of Swedish brand Tailor Store.  I had a wonderful day modelling bespoke tailoring in various locations around London, finishing the day off in the studio.  The shirts are gorgeous and fit perfectly, and photographer Jan Vrhovnik did a fantastic job.

Two shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015

Turning Leaves - Rust & Stardust - small poster_Ed_Fringe_a

I will be performing in two plays at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that could not be more different.

Following a sell out run at the Brighton Fringe, THE WILD MAN OF ORFORD will be transferring to Sweet Venues from the 10th-23rd August at 12:45pm at Sweet Grassmarket International 4.

Featuring an exciting combination of handmade puppets, live theatre and music and sand, glass and shadow animations THE WILD MAN OF ORFORD tells the tale of a merman who is discovered off the Suffolk coast in 1167. Is this scaly, glistening creature from the depths of the sea a man or monster? Is the wild man barbaric or simply free of the constraints of society? A story of freedom, kindness and the strange wild song of the sea.

I will also be reprising my role of L in Trees Grow High as part of TURNING LEAVES.

An unorthodox crush ripens into all-consuming sexual obsession. But W is 15 and L is his Classics teacher. It’s against the law. It’s against everything L has been taught to uphold. Is it against nature? Trees Grow High is a response to recent controversies in the news about teacher/pupil relationships and the way the media treats female perpetrators of sex crimes, exploring the abuse of trust and real love versus power and control.

TURNING LEAVES comprises of three powerful and stark solo performances exploring social perception and analysis of crime and risk.  The play runs from the 10th-16th August at 10pm at Sweet Grassmarket International 3 (Venue 18).

The Four Warriors had it’s UK release on 13th July and is available to buy online and from branches of Sainsburys, Morrisons and HMV and has reached number 12 in the UK DVD charts. I play the role of Dhara in this fantasy action adventure feature starring Game of Thrones Kristian Nairn.

The Wild Man of Orford sells out at the Brighton Fringe


I’m playing the storyteller in a beautiful piece of new writing THE WILD MAN OF ORFORD, which opened at The Dukebox Theatre as part of this years Brighton Fringe Festival, written and directed by Eleanor Conlon and brought to life by Rust and Stardust productions.  The show was a sell out success.  THE WILD MAN OF ORFORD features an exciting combination of handmade puppets, live theatre and music and projected animation.

Orford, the Suffolk coast, 1167. A fisherman hauls up a mysterious catch: a scaly, glistening creature from the depths of the sea. Man or monster? Is the wild man barbaric or simply free from the constraints of society?  A tale from English folklore of freedom, kindness, and the strange wild song of the sea. 

“Imaginatively adapted…surprisingly powerful.” (The Argus)

“…a few silent minutes of true wonder.” (Animations Online)
