I’ve written and produced three solo shows so far. All visual, black comedies, wordlessly performed by my alter ego Lois of the Lane, to a continuous soundtrack featuring voice over, music and sound effects.
Fabled | first performed in 2012 | show-specific website here
Finding herself as part of an unlikely storytelling set-up
with only her wits and a bottomless suitcase to hand,
Miss of the Lane will endeavour to entertain, against all odds…

Super Situation | first performed in 2009 | show-specific website here
Enter the world of Extraordinary Girl, ordinary Jo turned superhero.
Following exposure to a mysterious chemical at the hands of evil genius Megalomaniac Man,
Extraordinary is one of the members of the Government funded Unstoppable 5;
always ready to come to the rescue (not leaving a great deal of time for much else…).
Join her for a week in her life as she battles oversized animals, saves the Universe
and drinks one helluva lot of tea.

Glitch | first performed in 2006 | more information here
A lone woman traveller finds herself trapped in a holding cell during a routine security check.
Rather than succumb to the increasingly totalitarian surveillance,
she attempts to outwit the machine and make a bid for freedom –
hopefully in one piece…
Prior to all these was the production Deeper Underground, which kicked off the whole style for me!
Created with 3 drama school co-horts, you can find more information about it here.
armpit in your face; briefcase in your back; going nowhere fast.
Four strangers rammed in a carriage with no way out.
Join them Deeper Underground for their journey through reality
and out the other side…
