Tell us a bit about your job at the King’s Head Theatre?
I am the Senior Producer which means I head up and managing the producing team. My job involves working on a show from the very first conception right through to the last performance. I oversee the rights, budgets, contracting, making sure we are hitting our marketing targets, being here for all members of the creative and acting team for any for their needs and help make the show the best it can possible be. The list is kind of endless because the beauty of the job is that it is never predictable!
What’s the best piece of theatre you’ve ever seen?
Ahhh I see so much its so hard but it's an unfair question because you're catching me a week after seeing The Ferryman! It was just incredible on all levels, there was electricity in the room and I was just completely absorbed in the piece. I have just seen Touch at Soho Theatre which I thought was such a great piece of honest theatre looking at what it means to be a woman in her 30's and Daniel Kitson at the Roundhouse, I love his style of writing and how he sees the world. I suppose that's the theme I like, honest portrayals of lives, a bit gritty.
The King’s Head Theatre team make lunch for each other every Thursday, what’s your signature dish?
Anything with pasta usually, but I can make a mean picnic too :)
In an alternate universe, what would your ideal job be?
Probably an event or party planner, planning is in my blood and I like seeing people enjoying something you've created.
The King’s Head Theatre has a stupendous ice cream selection… what’s your favourite flavour?
Anyone will tell you I've got such a sweet tooth so i'm going with mint chocolate chip :)
Why does theatre matter?
Theatre is the place where you can suspend disbelief, be honest, be controversial, challenge, fight prejudice, educate, transport people to a different world, bring joy, push down barriers and connect. It can be immediate and effective and I think having things live in front of you just has such a different effect than watching through screens and being disconnected.
