I have written and perfomed many plays with various groups, as well as my own one-woman plays. As with everything that I do the theatre work always has a key underlying message for health, education or community and aims to raise awareness of a variety of issues.

As well as working freelance I work with other theatre companies. You can see us in costume in the photos to the right.
