“I joined Church From Scratch in early 2020 – spent more time with them on zoom than in real life!
I loved writing this modern day nativity story. The first meeting with Grace and Nat in CFS, sparked the whole thing. We discussed how to translate who these people would be in the year 2020. It all made it so much more real to me.
I wanted to explore the real-ness; the shepherds and wise kings would be normal people, that it was dangerous and at times traumatic for Mary and Joseph, that Jesus was a real baby and that fleeing to Egypt made him a refugee. It was all so relevant to what is happening in our world right now.
I’ve worked in theatre since 2010 as a designer, in wardrobe and stage manager. In the last year I’ve begun to focus on writing and producing. I set up Show Up Productions, as I especially want to create stuff in my hometown”.
