THEATRE - PLAY ON! - Violet Imbry/Diana Lassiter. dir. Neil Haydon. Wellington Repertory

THEATRE - WOLF - Cassie Ware. dir. Sam Fisher. Oily Rag Theatre

"Some stand out performances grounded the show. In particular Cassie (Susannah Donovan), the steam-punk next-door neighbour, who offers an earnest eccentricity to the ensemble’s dynamic." Salient review by Ophelia Wass, Adeline Shaddick and Ruby Hansen


THEATRE - NIGHTMARE - Angie. dir. Julia Campbell. Sweet Muffin Productions.

I have written about fashion for the fashion and culture websites, inthevoid and the4thwall. I have photography experience, so I know what works on film, and I have assisted with creating looks for photoshoots for theatre groups in Wellington. I have a great sense of personal style and I would love to get some ongoing experience with styling for fashion shoots.
