Claire Parry is an interdisciplinary theatre-maker/writer/performer/director/musician.
She trained in physical theatre at Jacques Lecoq. She has a particular penchant for clowning; accordingly she has two solo clown shows, Intolerable Side Effects and Boorish Trumpson, which will be going to Prague Fringe in October and Edinburgh Fringe 2021.
Claire is also working on an ensemble physical theatre piece called Cache Cache with Lecoq-trained company HOKA, which has a residency in Normandy in November and will be showing at Theatre 13 in Paris in March 2021. She also regularly directs for the outdoor multi-rolling, multi-instrumental Shakespeare company, Three Inch Fools.
Claire says: “I am (unsurprisingly) a huge fan of multidisciplinary work that has a strong physical element. When I write my hit clowning musical (which is a very real plan) you will probably notice I am also quite inspired by Stephen Sondheim.”
Suzy is a writer with a special interest in comedy. She took part in The North Wall’s ArtsLab Comedy Troll residency in 2017. Her recent work includes a farcical comedy ‘The Optimists’ (OUDS New Writing Festival 2017, Edinburgh Fringe 2017) and ‘Anna Karenina: The Musical’ (Keble O’Reilly Theatre). In television, she has worked with Mammoth Screen on ITVs Endeavour and as script editor for the Oxford based production company Inspiring Film.
Charlotte Hobbs is a Bristol-based actor and writer. She will start MA Acting at East 15 Acting School in October 2020.
“I am currently writing a lot of my own work and I have a real interest in comedy, femininity and the complexity of relationships.
I am most inspired by female writers, especially those from working class backgrounds. I also admire shows that focus on the writing and keep everything else simple, I really enjoy seeing how they cleverly interweave so much history and subtext within small pieces of dialogue.”
