December 2010 Meat by Matt Harris (adapted from a short story Desire and the Black Masseur by Tennessee Williams) at The Albany Theatre and Lion and Unicorn Theatre. "Skillfully directed by Vernon Douglas and perfectly cast the production tackles religious and racial issues as well as themes of sexual jealousy and obsession. It is an intense drama with moments of absurdity". UK Theatre Network
"This play raises pertinent questions with style and intrique, depicting the continued plight of the discrimination in an eloquent and entertaining way; a true example of what theatre should be. This sort of play truly is, to me, the reason theatre exits. Artaud once said "the purpose of theatre is not to define thought but to provoke it", a criteria MEAT meets with fervour." FRINGE REPORT
June 2009 The Maid by Shelia White at Rich Mix winner of the Alfred Fagon Award "Simple setting with powerful message all wrapped up with gentle and funny lines. Wonderful job at creating extreme background characters that we have learnt of but never seen. Love the not so happy ending. Keeps it real." AUDIENCE MEMBER "informative, dark, disturbing, hopeless, no exit" AUDIENCE MEMBER "Solo performance was totally engaging, engaging, dynamic Karen character was totally believable". AUDIENCE MEMBER
