The Secret Love Life of Ophelia with Dame Helen Mirren

Hello all! I hope everyone is well and staying safe during the current situation!

I've been lucky enough to have been chosen alongside 39 other young actors following a nationwide casting call to perform in Steven Berkoff's The Secret Love Life of Ophelia with the Greenwich Theatre in London.

The play acts as a prequel/side-story to Hamlet, featuring letters written from Hamlet to Ophelia and vice-versa, penned by Berkoff in Shakespeare's…

Reasons Why Theatre Makes Our Lives Better

Why Theater Matters, a regular feature of theatrewashington.org, owes its inspiration to Howard Shalwitz, artistic director of the Woolly Mammoth Theater Company, and remarks (part of which is listed below) that he made at Woolly's Dinner on September 17, 2011, an eloquent held event on stage.

These words capture the essence of why we at theatreWashington are inspired by theaters, artists, and audiences of all ages…

"I believe that we need plays like Wolfie at this time because they challenge the limitations we can put on ourselves in terms of how ‘difficult stories’ are told." - Izzy Rabey

My name is Izzy and I’ll be directing the play-reading of Wolfie by Ross Willis for NTW’s Network series. Wolfie is a play I read last year on a train back from London and I inhaled it, quickly deciding it was the next play I wanted to direct. I had never laughed out loud at stage directions before. As a director, you’re always hungry for the next play which is going to churn up something inside you, and ignite this I-Can’t-Not-Direct-This feeling which is…

Nell and The Old Woman - Graig Du Theatre Players

Charles Dickens created some of the most memorable characters in English Literature. This extract, from a monologue I wrote, “Nell and The Old Woman”, is about Nell Trent, the doomed heroine of “The Old Curiosity Shop”. The book deserves a careful reading because it offers many perspectives on human character; how people are made to suffer through no fault of their own. The monologue is part of my interpretation of a curious scene that takes place in a graveyard with an old woman Nell meets…
