The wedding planners

"The Wedding Planners" is a hilarious comedy musical written by Gillian Duffy and Alyson Orr. In this world premier of the production, I played the lead role of Mairi. 

Mairi has her dream job running the ‘I Do’ wedding agency, planning that special day for brides to be all over the country. But it's not all plain sailing – she has to deal with Bridezillas, wild Hen Nights and making sure there's always plenty of Prosecco on tap!  She is also fed up being single; she can't wait to find her Mr Right – she’s on every dating site there is, but she still can't find her Prince Charming...and to make matters worse, her colleagues Rose and Belle are both in relationships.  As Mairi continues to search for romance, she stumbles upon a secret that threatens to plunge the agency into chaos and ruin everything for an unsuspecting bride to be.

"The Wedding Planners" is the hilarious girls' night out you won't want to miss!

We had a fabulous run of shows in 2019   (Motherwell Theatre, East Kilbride Arts Centre, Howden Park Centre Livingston, Paisley Arts Centre, Oran Mor Glasgow, Eastwood Park Theatre Giffnock, Harbour Arts Centre Irvine and Beacon Arts Centre Greenock).  We are hoping to bring you this hilarious musical again in 2021... keep an eye on our Facebook page to see dates as they are announced: https://www.facebook.com/TheWeddingPlannersUK/


Having just finished a six week tour of TIE production "Spring-y" around Scottish primary schools, I returned to work with Hopscotch Theatre Company for their panto "Mother McGoose"  which toured from November 2019 to January 2020.

Due to the current restrictions in place, I am not currently booked for panto season 2020.


I was in the process of working with playwright Arthur Allan to develop and stage his one-woman show "Sure" for the Fringe this year, until the festival was cancelled. However, we are still working on this funny and touching production, and looking to reschedule the piece for the Fringe in 2021.

I have been using the lockdown to learn about creative writing and work on sketches for Punch Producton's "Pandemonium" series, plus write some work for myself.
