Biography

I am an experienced casting director with nearly 20 years in the industry. My casting career began at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1997 and I went freelance in 2001. I have collaborated on hundreds of productions with dozens of directors, producers and venues, and although my main focus has always been theatre, I have also cast for television, film, radio and commercials. I have been an in-house casting director for Chichester Festival Theatre, Rose Theatre Kingston, English Touring Theatre and Soho Theatre and returned to the RSC in 2005/6 to lead the casting for the Complete Works Season. I currently work closely with Danny Moar on many of the shows for Theatre Royal Bath Productions and with Laurence Boswell at the Ustinov Studio Theatre. I have cast for independent commercial producers as well as the subsidised sector, for the touring circuit, regional, fringe and West End venues, including the Almeida, Arcola, ATG, Birmingham Rep, Bolton Octagon, Bristol Old Vic, City of London Sinfonia, Clwyd Theatr Cyrmu, Frantic Assembly, Greenwich Theatre, Hampstead Theatre, Headlong, Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, Lyric Theatre Belfast, Marlowe Studio Canterbury, Menier Chocolate Factory, New Wolsey Ipswich, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Northampton Royal & Derngate, Oxford Playhouse, Plymouth Theatre Royal and Drum, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, Shared Experience, Sheffield Crucible, Sonia Friedman Productions, Theatre Royal Haymarket, Touring Consortium, Young Vic, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Yvonne Arnaud and Wilton’s Music Hall.
