Actress and Filmmaker.
After finishing the open air performances of Eve Versus Lucy for the Harris Carnival and Arts Festival we filmed sections of the text in various 'extreme locations' across Harris, including several beaches, marshes, and mountainous landscapes.
This footage will eventually be turned into a short film which will be available to view on Rural Nations' website but before that a shorter five minute version will be shown as part of an art installation at the Reclaim The Future Festival in Brussels in September.
I have just finished working on, Eve Versus Lucy, an open air theatre production in Harris in the Outer Hebrides for Stornoway based theatre company, Rural Nations.
I played Eve, The First Woman, in this English adaption of a French script by Brigitte Mounier. The production was part of the Harris Carnival and Arts Festival which ran from the 1st - 4th of August in various locations across the Isle of Harris.
I am delighted to announce my first short film as writer/producer is now finished! We have decided to rename it 'Dear Eduardo'. We think the new title better reflects the film's theme of letters and mail. Dear Eduardo will now be entered into film festivals across the world. I will post the trailer on here as soon as it's ready.
I had great fun over Christmas playing the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard Of Oz for Hopscotch Theatre Company. We performed over 80 shows across Scotland and I managed to melt every time!
We are continuing to work carefully on the post production for Eduardo Munez. Great fun was had on the 4th of March, when we filmed some additional drone footage in Walthamstow, London. I played multiple Scooter Ladies in various different coloured outfits which were all filmed from above by our wonderful drone operator, Roger.
The Eduardo Munez Letter Opening Ceremony took place on the 17th of November at Stanley Gibbons on the Strand. The entire letter collection (almost 500 pieces of mail art from 35 different countries) was opened live in front of an invited audience. A great night was had by all! Thank you to Stanley Gibbons for their support. Every single letter was used as a prop in the filming of Eduardo Munez back in June.
Shooting on my first short film as writer/producer is now complete. Eduardo Munez was shot over three days in London and is now in post production. Alongside writing and producing I also played the Postwoman in this mail themed film.
I have now finished my third tour (following on from 2014 and 2015) of Burns Last Supper for Hopscotch Theatre Company. A forty five minute show with live music, Burns Last Supper tells the story of Robert Burns' life from his childhood in Ayrshire through to his death in Dumfries at the age of thirty seven. A two hander, I played thirteen different characters including, Jean Armour, Nelly Kilpatrick and the Devil.
I have just finished performing in The Return of the Walthamstow Mysteries with the same team as last year. It was lovely to work with everyone again and the shows were just as successful this time round. We had some glorious sunshine and even added an extra show due to public demand.
