Currently Rehearsing for ‘The White Witch’

Having a wonderful time working with acclaimed director and RSC alumni Joseph Charles. The play, written by playwright Barry Reckord, formerly of Royal Court, is an incredible exposé of what life may have been like In 1830’s Jamaica set in a back drop of slavery. I’m enjoying playing Chloe immensely, the writing is beautiful and at times deeply poetic. I am myself half Jamaican and there have been so many historical discoveries for me within this process. The legend of Annie Palmer a ‘witch’ who lived in Jamaicas infamous Rose Hall, one of the biggest slavers plantations and what happened in and around the great house. It’s astonishing how Reckord has made observations that are still absolutely relevant today. Woven with legend is religion, relationships and above all survival. Showing 3 – 30th April at Chelsea Theatre
