This festival had the theme ‘Forbidden love’, for which the writers of the Oxford writers group wrote specific pieces and a few selected where then performed at The Garden Theatre in Oxford in June 2015.

One role let to the next and I also played the part of Hermione in Gwilym Scourfield’s ‘The Myth in the Machine … (Thorry!)’ which I performed together with Marcus Davis-Orrom. This is play a short comedy taking place in 2030 in which my character pretends to be a robot to try and find out if her ex still loves her.

A play about excessively overeating when in an emotional situation.
