Having spent twenty years as a teacher trainer, my work with music and drama students made the move into theatre seem a natural progression. I have since had countless amazing experiences, ranging from directing a couple of monologues at the Barbican Plymouth to playing Laurie Lee in Rougemont Gardens, The Government Inspector at the Northcott and various deranged characters in the Curse of the Werewolf at the Minack. The new writing productions in association with the Cygnet, the theatre workshops and the tours around the shires with various companies have been a great education as is this interesting and challenging mosaic.
Sally Barrett-Geake graduated from Cygnet training theatre in 2013. Since leaving credits include Last embrace (Tree Shadow Theatre), How Well You Know Me (Tree Shadow Theatre), National TIE, Insensible (Southwest and Edinburgh). Most recently Sally has been involved in independent filming projects and now is excited to be going back to theatre with Eggs alongside a great cast and thought provoking piece.
Rosie trained at Cygnet Theatre, and before graduating in 2014, was selected to perform in the prestigious Sam Wanamaker Festival at Shakespeare’s Globe, along with other top students from across the UK. Since graduating, Rosie has established herself in the London fringe theatre scene, both as an actor and writer. Her first play ‘Welfare in Jerusalem’ premiered at The Bread and Roses Theatre in 2015. Rosie is thrilled to be working with such a talented cast and creative team on Eggs and has every faith in a big future for this exciting new production.
Lucy graduated from Cygnet Theatre, following a successful tour of The Rivals, with Creative Cow, during her third year. She then went straight on tour with Tree Shadow Theatre productions, with How Well You Know Me, touring London, the North, the Midlands, and here in the South West. Lucy also performed for Tree Shadow last year in Waving Goodbye, which had a successful run in The Phoenix Theatre, London and on tour. She has performed at venues such as Buxton opera House, Theatre Royal Windsor and The Lowry.
After studying History at the University of York, I decided to forge a career behind the scenes and, after brief work experience on Broadchurch, started work as a Floor Runner on the television series Doc Martin. It was during my time as a runner that I realised acting was the only career for me. I took a slightly less exciting office job which was flexible enough for me to start building my acting experience and training. I took weekend classes at Pinewood Studios, London and Bristol before the opportunity to continue my studies in Paris presented itself. I spent last year at L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq studying theatre and acting.
Damian Schedler Cruz
Damian recently completed his first year of training as a full time student at Cygnet Training Theatre, where he has performed in a number of productions, including Mind Your Farce!, The Winter’s Tale and Terrorism. Before moving to the UK, Damian took part in the Mexican Swiss School’s student theatre for three consecutive years. In 2014 he completed a three-semester part-time training program in voice acting.
Rosalind Campbell (Producer)
After completing her M.A. degree in Shakespeare Studies at Stratford-upon-Avon, Rosalind entered theatre in a stage management role with the York YSP theatre company in 2008. She acted as stage manager and co-producer on Louisa Wilde’s production of Last Embrace at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2013. Eggs will be Rosalind’s second project with Louisa Wilde’s Tree Shadow Theatre Co.
