Show Archive

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…

Performed 20 times at the The British Library in January/February 2009
as part as their Taking Liberties exhibition


 

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.

Rush hour:
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…
