Using Jenny Lane’s play “Harlowe” as source material, I collaborated with filmmaker and photographer Jeanette Sweetman to create this experimental short film.

A classic story of modern motherhood.
A working single-mother gets one night to herself; she escapes to the theatre and becomes part of the performance as she struggles with keeping the secrets of her past. Can she write her own story, as she steals the spotlight at the theatre, or does she become the myth she’s woven into on stage? This contemporary riff on the Greek classic asks surprising questions about motherhood, marriage, adoption. Surprisingly funny and tragically honest, Not Medea is the show you did not know you meant to see.

R3 is a radical re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Richard III as told by the story’s women, engulfed in a nightmare world of power, politics and war, R3 is a story that is both timely and timeless. Do monsters exist in humanity? What do our contemporary monsters look like? And who is responsible for their creation? R3 will be performed by a company of six: one male and five female performers. The play will be told through the point of view of the Queens – Elizabeth, Margaret, Lady Anne, The Duchess of York – in their desperate attempts to gain the crown and power for their men. These powerless subjects, whose voices have been shut down by history, confront Richard, the performer and master of deceit, as a character that delights in making us his accomplices while at the same time threatening our essence as human beings.
