In October I’ll be co-devising and directing a new piece of theatre, Princess Charming. It was first developed at Mini VAULT Festival in February 2016 and we now have a fantastic producer, Jessica Cheetham of Spun Glass Theatre.
It is a cabaret-inspired show for children exploring and celebrating gender identity and expression.
I’m really pleased to be returning to Iris Theatre to direct a new version of Hansel and Gretel. It will be outdoor, promenade and not quite as you know it… We are currently in rehearsals. Expect an entertaining mix of silly and sinister. With songs.
It will run from 3 Aug – 3 Sept. Info and tickets here

will make 30,000 people disappear before your very eyes.
These Trees are Made of Blood is a brand new piece of political theatre set in a timeless Buenos Aires cabaret club before, during and after Argentina’s Dirty War. Blending original live music and exciting cabaret acts, it tells the story of one mother’s search for her Disappeared daughter and promises to be an unique and memorable live experience.
So come on in. The club’s open all hours and history can always be rewritten after one too many.
The show originally ran at Southwark Playhouse from 18th March – 11th April 2015.
