Why do you do what you do?
I have always been a firm believer in the phrase ‘every day is a school day’. As people, we never stop learning, growing and evolving, which is pretty incredible. That’s the ethos that I have wanted to instil in my theatre company – creating work that empowers and educates. Our recent work at Norwich Fringe Festival did just that – opening up conversations for members of the LGBTQ+ community in East Anglia.
What’s your role in SparkFest?
Producer, actor, writer – just a few roles! Myself, Lydia Webb and Leonie Barnes-Wake have devised a play called ME ‘ANSUM. It is an expansion of our Norwich Fringe scratch project and focuses on the complications of same sex relationships for women. We follow two university students, Saff and Bella – they have instant chemistry but how can you tell if she’s being friendly or flirting with you?
