I can’t just pick one existing production so I’d have to say an amazing piece of new writing.

Make theatre tickets far cheaper for the day so that they’re accessible to everyone.

Southbank really late at night when it’s not rammed. 

Tell us about your forthcoming work at the DraytonArms Theatre?

It’s a great piece of new writing by Sophie Swithinbank. This is the third time I’ve been involved in ‘The Superhero’– Starboard Festival, The Tabard & now here. I keep coming back because I love the piece & the creative team and I’m super excited to work with the new cast members on the newest edit – it’s even better now!
