When I was a young and keen drama student, I thought there could be nothing more wonderful than doing radio plays for BBC radio. Many years later and an ocean away, I get to do just that right here in sunny Cal-i-forn-eye-ay! What?! Producer/Director/Actor/Impressario team Martin Jarvis and Ros Ayres record many of their BBC productions over here, and do the same for LA Theatre Works. Not only do I get to do amazing plays, I get to perform with amazing people. I have played: Alfred Molina’s daughter, his niece and his charwoman; I’ve been Stacy Keach’s protégé; Olivia Williams’ best friend; Julian Sands’ quarry; Jared Harris’s robot nanny; Anne Heche’s nemesis; Simon Templeman’s ward and his wife; Lucy Davis’s minx of a maid; and, on many wonderful occasions, Joanne Whalley’s fellow demoiselle. It is not my intention to drop a lot of names (although, yes, I kind of did!) but to point out radio is a wonderful and magical place where extraordinarily wonderful and magical people create wonderful and magical art. I have also been fortunate enough to be involved in Emmy-winning TV writer Joseph Dougherty’s Handwritten Theatre which played on various PBS stations and is now available on iTunes, and I play Chips in the award-winning podcast The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd. Scroll away for an assortment of clips!
Here are a few of the plays I’ve done for LA Theater Works that can be heard in LA on KPFK and around the country on local PBS stations. They are available wherever audiobooks are sold.
