Anne: A New Monologue

“They never taught me how to read. In all the years I was his wife, I never once read the plays”

I had the pleasure of premiering this new monologue written by Victoria Baumgartner (Artistic Director of Will & Co.) which tells the untold tale of Anne Shakespeare, wife to the world-famous bard.

The piece debuted at the Pleasance Theatre, London as part of Glass Splinters New Writing Night.

Mum, I did the funnies at the Beeb!

News Revue were invited to perform at BBC Radio Hall and it was a joyful whirlwind. As you can see, we were very excited by our green room mirrors.

Thank you to our director, Edwina Strobl, for running the joint with effortless cool, to Josh Reichental for seamlessly slipping into the shoes for MD and keeping us funky on keys, and to our producer Emma Taylor for the brilliant opportunity.

Private Lives on Tour

It’s been a fabulous two months on tour performing as Sybil in Noel Coward’s Private Lives. We’ve had all the surprises that open air theatre provides (including a walk-on from an enthusiastic dog) and a whole lot of fun.

The photos above were taken by Dave Lloyd at our show at the White Horse in Stourpaine, Dorset.

Thank you to all the lovely Shooting Stars team.

“Elyot… has just wed the slightly frumpy but thrilled Sybil (batting well up the order and well realised by Katherine Moran)”

David Winskill, Ham & High

 

“Fortunately, [Jonas Cemm] has Katherine Moran and Tim Larkfield in the parts [of Sybil and Victor], she the closet tigress, he her counterpart victim”

Alan Franks, London Theatre 1

 

“A true celebration of Noel Coward’s work which should not be missed”

“If you pay enough attention, you’ll notice the odd touches of modern life creep into the performance without taking anything away from the original work”
