Paint me like one of your French girls…

Have you been involved in 14/48 before?
Yes. Acting.

What are you doing for this 14/48 festival?

What’s your experience been like so far?
SO MUCH FUN. LIKE, SO MUCH FUN. I was a turkey yesterday. I never thought I’d say so many gobble gobbles in one day. And today I’ve got a great script written by Dave Pitt. It’s so fun. Just really, really fun. I’m tired as shit but it’s all good.

Give us a little snippet of what your play is about.
It’s set in Narnia, I can say that much, and it’s after the end of the last books. I think. I don’t really know Narnia. But it’s summer and my character falls into it by accident and accidentally starts… No, I won’t say that…. Meets some… interesting characters…

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about getting involved next time?
DO IT. Like, you’ll wake up on the morning and wonder why the fuck you did it, but put that aside because everyone’s in the same boat and they’re all really supportive. It’s a great laugh so do it. Basically. JUST DO IT.

Would you rather talk like Jar Jar Binks OR look like Jar Jar Binks?
Oh god that’s a hard one. I don’t know because I’m pretty fucking smoking. Ha ha ha. I’M JOKING. I’m joking… Ahem… I think it would have to be… Ughhh… Look like him. No. I don’t know. That’s a hard one. I’m gonna say for the meantime look like him.

If you had to describe your 14/48 experience so far in no more than three words, what would it be?
(Starts laughing somewhat menacingly – I think the fatigue may have made her delusional) SO MUCH FUN. In capital letters.
