I'm an actor, writer and sometime cabaret performer - originally from the UK, I moved to NYC in 2017 to marry my partner.
In New York I have acted Off-Broadway in "Puffs", and with various companies including: Life Jacket Theatre Co, Bard City, The Shakespeare Forum, Seven Stages Shakespeare Company, The Rude Grooms and performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company at the New York Times and The Folger Library. I am also the voice of a talking dog for a series of adverts for Bulldog men's grooming products!
In the UK, I appeared in the RSC's acclaimed 5* double-bill of Love's Labour's Lost and Much Ado About Nothing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, West End. The productions transferred after an initial run at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon in 2014/15, where they played in rep with The Christmas Truce by Phil Porter.
Other theatrical highlights include playing Scripps in the UK tour of Alan Bennett's The History Boys (dir. Chris Luscombe), singing a Lady Gaga duet with Deborah Findlay in The Way of the World (dir. Lyndsey Turner) and fulfilling my dream of flying to Neverland as Slightly in the RSC's Wendy & Peter Pan (dir. Jonathan Munby). I also was lucky enough to play Ray in the UK premiere of Stephen Sondheim's revised version of Saturday Night (Arts Theatre), which received critical acclaim and Sondheim himself came to meet us!
I was also a part of the London alternative cabaret scene. I created Joe deVivre [and the Circle of Friend] and, with Joe's only friend Radina (Sophie Steer), we brought mirth and melancholy to London's cabaret venues (Madame Jojo's, The Battersea Barge and Shoreditch Town Hall to name a few). I wrote a piece of original gig-theatre called Darlene Dakota's Goddamn Show, which had a staged reading at the Pleasance Theatre, London, in 2016.
