Rebel Rabble with Limbik Theatre was a devised piece weaving together Ketts Rebellion with the everyday rebellions of the participants.
The Song of the Worm was developed with Norwich Theatres as part of Page to Stage and performed at the Playhouse and further developed and performed at The Garage Theatre Norwich to launch Before I Go Theatre Company.

In 2023 I took part in Climate Writing at Norwich Theatre and developed a new solo performance Sensitive Indicator. This performance weaves together my life as an older woman with the life of an endangered butterfly -the Grizzled Skipper. The piece explores the insect crisis, cycles of life, vulnerability and connection and what potential we are leaving behind for the next generation.
