Victoria travelled the length and depth of the UK performing in two productions in rep for five busy months!  Jane Austen’s Emma and William Shakespeare’s comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost.  Playing a host of roles, including the hapless Harriet Smith and reserved Jane Fairfax in the Austen, and witty Rosaline and the fool Costard in the Bard’s romp, her fellow Heartbreak Productions’ cast  braved the elements as come wind or shine “the show must go on,” as they say; and on it did!   They played to wonderfully receptive audiences throughout the summer in some stunning locations with beautiful backdrops.

Victoria played Elizabeth I in a rehearsed reading of Heathcote Williams’ new play Killing Kit on February 12th at The Cockpit.  Killing Kit details the extraordinary events leading to the murder of Christopher Marlowe, including the abuses and duplicity suffered by the writer at the hands of the State under Elizabeth I and the theatrical and literary betrayals he endured – not least Shakespearean plagiarism.

Production news…

 

WMSpromoVictoria appeared in Offie nominated When Midnight Strikes Upstairs at the Gatehouse.  She played new age hippie Zoe and the production received 4 and 5 star reviews across the board.  Here are just a couple of quotes from reviewers:

“a welcome brand-new staging of WHEN MIDNIGHT STRIKES… A very strong ensemble cast of 12 strike musical theatre gold… I wish more theatres did new & recent shows.”

Mark Shenton

Theatre Critic for Sunday Express

“This is ensemble theatre at its very best… I can sum this show up in one word – Brilliant!”

Steve Stubbs

BackStage Pass

A top-notch cast… acting with naturalistic authenticity… all singing like the angels had

blessed them with vocal chords of silk and honey and not a weak link among them…a real

treat for the eyes and ears!”

Joe Crystal, One Stop Arts

Victoria performed at Leicester Curve in their ChristmasSNS

production of Santa’s New Sleigh.  This festive two-hander

was a sell-out and received fabulous reviews.

Victoria performed in Matthew Lewis’ gothic horror The Monk at the Barons Court Theatre (16th October-4th November)

She played Agnes, a virtuous yet naive young girl who intends on running away with her lover, Don Raymond, in order to escape her parents’ wishes for her

to become a nun.  Her plans however, are foiled, and believing that Raymond has abandoned her, she enters the convent.

Things go from bad to worse for Agnes when her history with Raymond and her pregnancy are unearthed by the pious monk Ambrosio.  Agnes is

tortured by the cruel Lady Prioress and gives birth to a stillborn baby boy.

 

2011

After the success of a single leaf’s

revamp of The Way of the World at The Bridewell, Victoria

returned to the company in its modern adaptation of

Restoration classic The Man of Mode.  This lunchtime show

pulled in great audiences and Victoria enjoyed flouncing

round the stage as scheming Belinda.

 

 

In stark contrast to this blingy, Paris Hilton inspired character (in the

rejuvenated Man of Mode), Victoria played  Charlotte, a young American

junkie dying of AIDS in Elegies for Angels, Punks  and  Raging Queens

at Camden’s Theatro Technis.   These productions showcased strikingly

contrasting examples of Victoria’s work and consequently attracted

interest from an agent, with whom Victoria has now signed.
