Having had an amazing number of scripts submitted for this month's Page to Stage, it was a challenge choosing four. And on the night, I was so grateful to all those involved, with everyone working hard to create a fab evening. Much fun had by all.
Busy with auditions and quite a few workshops this month - including an all-day workshop with Finnian Tweed (casting director), organised by N1.
It was great to work with fellow N1 members. I also enjoyed another 2-day Scaffold Shakespeare workshop, this time working on Two Gentlemen of Verona.
Pic: filming a scene to add to my showreel. And really enjoyed an all-day workshop with CD Lucy Jenkins,
organised by me on behalf of N1. Also on behalf of N1, I went to various drama school showcases - we're on the look-out for talent we can represent well! And we had a lovely (air conditioned) June Page to Stage.
It was an honour to perform in Sunday's Child, a powerful new play with Mad'Ed Theatre about the impact of Clause 28. If you were around in the '80s the memories come flooding back; if you weren't you'll be stunned by what some people believed were acceptable attitudes back then.
The perfect month to get my stuff together. Filmed another scene to update my showreel, recorded some new v/o tracks for my voicereel, and booked in new headshots with Nicholas Dawkes. No-one I know enjoys getting headshots done, but Nic comes highly recommended.
Organising and hosting this month's Page to Stage once again went very well - with four great scripts, a fab team of directors and writers, a wise and generous industry panel, and a lively, engaged audience.
Organised by my Equity branch, I did a really interesting CD workshop this month with Aisha Bywaters. And as it was my turn to chair the monthly N1 meeting – in our fab new office – it was also my job to organise Xmas
drinkies at a local pub. No problem!
