Welcome to the latest edition of my website!
It’s like a listings magazine of all the different work I’ve done, and I hope that you will be able to find entertaining images, information and clips.
There’s stuff in here that even I’d forgotten, but it’s been lovely rediscovering so many characters and disguises in my back catalogue. I hope you enjoy them too!
I have even found rare recordings of the two musicals "Poppy" and "The Hired Man" from the 1980s - you can find them on my Theatre Page and have a listen too!
I have enjoyed a very busy time at work in the theatre since late 2011, playing Homily in ‘The Borrowers’ at The Nuffield Theatre Southampton followed by another enriching season at Shakespeare At The Tobacco Factory in Bristol. I played Goneril opposite John Shrapnel’s ‘King Lear’ and Mme Ranevskaya in ‘The Cherry Orchard’, and then went on to play Amanda Wingfield in ‘The Glass Menagerie’ at The Everyman Theatre Cheltenham, followed by a sell-out run of 'Entertaining Mr Sloane' at The Curve Leicester, playing Kath'. I then retuned to The Curve in April 2013 to play Toine in 'Piaf' and also revisited The Orange Tree Richmond after many years to play Margaret in Susan Glaspell's Springs Eternal. This production marked the end of Sam Walters' tenure after 42 years in charge at the Orange Tree Theatre.
Thanks for visiting.
Julia was introduced to Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory in Bristol in January 2011 when she took the parts of both the Duchess of York and the Duchess of Gloucester in their acclaimed production of ‘Richard II’. She was so excited by the Company and its work ethic that she returned to do a full season in 2012 and played both Goneril in ‘King Lear’ and Mme Ranevskaya in ‘The Cherry Orchard’ by Chekhov.
Julia is currently playing Lady Sneerwell in 'The School for Scandal' directed by Andrew Hilton.
