Did a fascinating workshop with CD Sarah Hughes, run by The Actors Guild (founded by actors, for actors). Asked my agent to follow up, as Sarah had made very complimentary comments. Rather vague response from agent – and then, sadly, at the end of this month they closed down.
Unfortunately, my two main projects this month – planning the April Page to Stage, and researching options for a new agent – had to be postponed due to a hospital op. Nothing too scary, but frustrating when there are things to organise!
Sadly had to take the decision to cancel the April Page to Stage due to ill health. But the June event is all booked in, and the call-out for writers will go out shortly.
Enjoyed filming a promotional video as an ear doctor for German health company Doctorly – shooting scenes with a mother and child in 'my' surgery. Also busy prepping for a few auditions, and of course for next month's Page to Stage.
Pic: Francesca Isherwood and Nathan Medina reading Jules at the Union, one of the four chosen pieces at this month's Page to Stage. With talented cast and directors, and a fab industry panel giving feedback to the writers, it was a great evening.
Got new headshots done by the lovely Claire Grogan (2nd time of going to her – I really like the way she directs the shoot). And I'm busy organising the next Page to Stage – the last one of 2017!
This month's Page to Stage
featured scripts with all-female
characters. Writers, directors and actors responded brilliantly to the challenge, and we had an amazing
panel and enthusiastic audience. Huge thanks to everyone involved!
I was delighted to take part in The
5 Minute Festival at Stockwell Playhouse this month, performing
the powerful monologue Ticket Barrier (written by Richard Fitchett and directed by Rachel Creeger). In just a couple of rehearsals it was great to create an impactful piece.
