2015 has been an exciting year! It involved being in “Wide Open Opera’s” production of “Things We Throw Away” in Belfast and Dublin, appearing in soon to be released “Dare To Be Wild” directed by Vivienne DeCourcy, being nominated as the best actor in L.A. Short Film Festival for “Positive Discrimination” directed by Charlo Johnson, recording original poetry Dioni Mayo in Spain, appearing on stage in “Mother You” directed by Louise White in the Tiger Fringe Festival and Theatre Upstairs production “The Bells Of ” directed by Louisa Sanfey. Participation in the Theatre Institutes pilot scheme, Prime, was also a highlight. This was amazing scheme to help older actors to kick start their careers.
Another highlight was being selected to participate in Theatre Forums “Next Stage” – an 18 day immersion in theatre, 26 plays, workshops, seminars and discussions facilitated by Christine Poulter. Along the way there were videos for Thinkhouse, voice recordings at Beacon Studios and overall strengthening of career opportunities and future prospects.
