I began my working life as an actress here in the UK and in Australia, where I lived for a time way back as a ten pound Pom. I’ve been a scriptwriter for TV, radio and theatre, a script editor, playscout, lyricist and co-founder of The Children’s Musical Theatre of London, creating devised musicals with primary-school age children.
I have recently finished writing the follow-up to Worst Country featuring my great great grandfather George Matcham Pitt, farmer, entrepreneur, raconteur and founder of the Australian stock and station agent Pitt, Son & Badgery. A Country To Be Reckoned With is due for publication in 2018.
I also arrange theatre tours for visitors to London, and I teach and lecture part-time on British theatre. My theatre website is here: www.londontheatrevisits.com.
I am the mother of two adult offspring, I live in north London and I have a Freedom Pass. My hobbies are singing, dancing, discovering ancient sites in London and rag rugging. I may not be great shakes at the first two but I’m crash hot at the last, though I say it myself.
