Who we are



Emily is a feminist Director, Performer, Artist and Educator, who grew up in Kent and is now based in London. She enjoys creative expression and its ability to encourage positive change in society. Through theatre, Emily hopes to create a space for the voices and stories of women in the hope to provoke attitudes and discourse on prevalent matters. She believes theatre is the perfect artform to help people empathise, feel, connect, and even laugh, over the difficult things we all struggle to talk about in life. 

Emily trained at Royal Holloway, University of London, and went on to pursue a Master’s Degree at Kent University in Contemporary Performance Practice, specialising in physical theatre, puppetry and object manipulation. From here she took the dark-comedy, ‘What’s in the Punch?’ to both Canterbury and Brighton Fringe Festivals. As a trained teacher, Emily now inspires young people to grow and learn through the dramatic arts as Head of Academic Drama at a school in South London.

Charlotte is a feminist Director, Actor and Educator, originally from Liverpool and based in London. She aims to present the female perspective in her storytelling and create provocative, bold theatre as a means of activism and social change. She enjoys directing political, dark comedy that makes people belly laugh and ugly cry and exploring taboo subjects viewed as ‘impolite to talk about at the dinner table’. 

Last year Charlotte directed ‘Nevernatal’, a feminist comedy which had a sold out run at the Hen & Chicken’s Theatre in London and achieved 4* reviews at Edinburgh Fringe Festival at The Space @ Surgeon’s Hall where it was well received with excellent audience feedback. It was described as ‘sparky comedy with feminist fun’, ‘and ‘full of zingers, funny, gaudy and off the wall’. 

Charlotte is also an Acting Coach and Teacher, trained in Acting at RADA with a degree in Drama & Theatre from Royal Holloway University of London and a PGCE from UCL. She is the Founder and Director of Performworks Productions which is a performing arts school for young actors in a variety of schools across London. She’s passionate about making performing arts education accessible to all young people and the transformative power it has to improve confidence, self esteem and mental health.
