I took part in an amazing workshop the other day with a top British theatre director who had a chat with us all about equality in the industry. I have read many, many articles on this and realised that it was something I hadn't actually spoken about in great detail. There are a variety of … Continue reading Acting Equality
On Sunday my boyfriend, Bobby and I had the pleasure of attending 'Keep Calm, I'm Only Diabetic' at The Old Red Lion Theatre Pub in Islington.
