PERFORMANCE & THEATRE

I have been involved in large and small scale theatrical productions for over fifteen years as a performer, director, and stage/production manager. I'm a trained singer, and enjoy messing about on the drums and recorder.

I work collaboratively, focusing on pieces that disrupt with love, care, and almost certainly bare bum cheeks. I have had the joy of devising with The Arcola Queer Collective, The Union Chapel Artist in Residence, service users from Camden & Islington Recovery Services, the Gay Liberation Front, and more!

CURTAIN'S UP!

I've worked in the live arts for over ten years as a stage and production manager, director and facilitator, across commercial, student, and community theatre. I'm also a lifelong performer and classically trained singer, with established solo acts and a love of large company pieces. I've worked at venues across the capital, performing at The Bishopsgate Institute, The Barbican Centre, The Union Chapel, The King's Head, Arcola, and many, many more.

TESTIMONIALS

Audience members after 'Tranny Trash Pervert Scum!' at The Glory, August 2021

"A vital, TRANSgressive punch in the face about trans lives and society... A subversive and delightfully chaotic assault on theatre as we know it."

"Clever, poignant and hilarious in equal measure, a show that wouldn’t be out place in Edinburgh or West End fringe. Obviously total trash as well!"

"I really enjoyed The Trashettes show at The Glory recently. It was both informative and hysterical. All the performers were fabulous each adding their own unique personalities to make the show incredible. The Trashettes took the place by storm and left everyone wanting more, I will definitely see them again"

"Hilariously funny !! , the Trashettes are the best group I've seen live in years. My housemates and I can't wait for the next show!!"

"Energy, sparkle, politics, sex. I loved it."
 

"It was moving, joyous, sexy, funny, exiting and political. It really captured the atmosphere of GLF, which believe me is quite an achievement."

Members of the original Gay Liberation Front respond to 'They, Them, We, Us', 2019

"A friend told me that she saw an immigration raid happening in a shop. And she said she thought of the show, and actively tried to overcome her fear, and talked to the shop keeper (who immigration enforcement were talking to).

She explained to him that he didn't have to let them in without a warrant. He said, are you sure that's true? The officers tried to get her to keep out of it. But the shopkeeper then told the officers to leave, and they did! Then he and my friend went and had lunch together and talked about how to resist raids."
