I dreamt about my dad liking anime. He was a bit sick, I think — nothing serious, just something that stilled his active nature — and we were watching an anime movie full of short stories. He liked them and dream-me was so excited about going to the library and…


This text has been written thanks to the support of my Patrons and first published here. My love goes to them and the volunteer editors, who looked this over for me.

I’ve been telling everyone that I’m going to write about trauma in improv, like writing is going out of…


Before I say anything else at all: SILENCE IS VIOLENCE. White allies, we must support the Black Community. Here is a petition to include Black British history in the school curriculum. There is, in fact, an existing social enterprise that aims to do just that — support The Black Curriculum…


Conversations, conversations, conversations. Think pieces I read (and shared) for the past week or so; conversations with other women where we reveal insecurities and battle stories ("it didn’t seem bad enough to complain"; "I think I forget the incidents in self-protection", "I’m so sorry it happened to you"). …

Okay, I saw “My Country” yesterday, and let’s just say, I was NOT the target…


It’s Thursday morning and anxiety is being a bit of a bitch. I slept badly — too cold, rough dreams — and struggle to make myself do things. I talk myself through it — through shower, nice breakfast, a bit of calming exercise — but I still fail at time…


Great physicality, well matched ensemble and thoughtful vision.

The East London Shakespeare Company has been on my radar for some time. (Full disclosure: I Know People In The Company). I’ve seen one or two previous productions and it struck me how doggedly they kept to the principles of diversity. No tokenism in that – the company structure is…
