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.
Delighted to be reading fin-de-siècle prose and poetry as part of an event promoting new literary anthology Decadence, at the equally decadent venue of The Last Tuesday Society. A really fun evening. And we had a fab February Page to Stage.
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: reading Colloquium ad Absurdum by Andreas Paraskevaides at Liars League (short stories read by actors, with a quiz, bar and lots of laughs). And at Page to Stage we had four great scripts, a constructive industry panel, fab actors and directors, and warm audience support.
Pic: Taking part in a fab workshop jointly run by Bechdel Theatre (Beth Watson) and the Thelmas (Maddy Moore). I hugely admire their work promoting women in theatre. Spent a happy afternoon in Out of Joint's rehearsal room workshopping various pieces that met the Bechdel test.
Thrilled to announce that I have a new agent! Now represented by NorthOne Management. Really looking forward to working with such a great gang of people. Meanwhile, planning is underway for September's Page to Stage.

Got new headshots done by the lovelyClaire 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!
characters. Writers, directors and actors responded brilliantly to the challenge, and we had an amazing
panel and enthusiasticaudience. Huge thanks to everyone involved!
I was delighted to take part in The
5 Minute Festival at Stockwell Playhouse this month, performing
the powerfulmonologueTicket Barrier (written by Richard Fitchett and directed by Rachel Creeger). In just a couple of rehearsals it was great to create an impactful piece.
