I have added this page to showcase my work as an extra/supporting artiste. Below is a list of my credits.

Poppy Shakespeare was written by Clare Allan and was longlisted for the Orange Broadband Prize for fiction 2007. It is an account of madness told by the narrator, a character only ever referred to as N, as she acts as guide to the new arrivee to the Dorothy Fish day ward (situated on the first floor of the Abaddon Unit) - the glamorous Poppy Shakespeare. Poppy is convinced she is not mad and is determined to get out of the Abaddon and back to her life. N never wants to leave and has perfected the art of "dribbling" in her thirteen years at the hospital.
