About me:

Hi! My name is Becky and I'm currently appearing in a filmed stage production of 'tHE wELL' in Salford, Manchester.

I play the lead role, and the piece is a Beckett-esque comedic enquiry into the mind of a depressed individual, and her relationship with her best friend. It has elements of clowning in it, and will be filmed and broadcast throughout December 2020.

I am also a singer in the 3 part harmony jazz band, 'The Villanelles'.
