WHAT YOU’RE MISSING, Chutzpah! Festival, 2015 / King’s Head Theatre, London, 2014

‘A laugh-out-loud snapshot of family dynamics.’ –Vancouver Presents

Isabel and Ed are a young couple living in the shadows of two different histories – the Eastern European and Chilean Jewish experiences. It’s 1973 in Canada, and they really like each other – and each other’s parents. They want to embark on their own journey, but first they must do battle at home. As their two families meet, eat, misinterpret and overreact, will the older generation be a help … or a hindrance?

Nominee at the 2015 Jessie Richardson Awards (Outstanding Supporting Actress, Outstanding Costume Design). Developed through the Without Decor scheme, King’s Head Theatre.

FANTASMAGORIANA, 2011 Edinburgh Festival Fringe

‘A frolic through a traditional, quintessentially English passion for poetry and the art of writing … definitely worth a look.’ –BroadwayBaby

Having fled Britain in scandal, Lord Byron is pent up in Geneva with writer’s block and a male lover. Mary and Percy Shelley have come to visit, but why? And what will they all do amid the nonstop rain? What starts as an innocent writing contest, to quicken the heart and curdle the blood, spawns surprise arrivals, rivalries and romance – and the most infamous monster the world has known. Join this motley group as they clash, picnic and witness the birth of … Frankenstein! Mad, bad and dangerous to see.

Supported by the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club.
