The Brilliant, Resilient,
Safely Distanced Damsels

A walk about show created with the support of Arts Council Wales Stabilisation Fund for the public out and about during lockdown.

Fear not, all is well. The Damsels are here to save the world and are on our way to Aberystwyth with our cart full of highly specialised world saving equipment created by designer/maker Popol Fazerlerkey. Outfits, handmade by upcycling designer Carys Hedd (Wenchwear). To be featured on Blue Hare podcast, produced by author and fellow storyteller Hayley Addis. Dates and further details to be announced but we anticipate that we will be landing in Aberystwyth around August bank Holiday.




Imogen Palmer's first play, 'Convergence', is set in contemporary London. It is about friendship, identity, and the social and economic barriers that divide and define us.


Jackie and Sophie partied hard well in to the nineties with a shared vision of a better world.


Their paths diverged and now, 19 years later, Jackie comes crashing, unannounced back in to Sophie's life. Jackie has married a banker and lives in Chelsea. She finds Sophie now living on an estate in South London, from where she and her two children are about to be evicted. Over one intense, hedonistic night they try to make sense of the past and rediscover their friendship.

As Madam Erpingham in The Erpingham Camp, a black farce by Joe Orton. Directed by Harry Durnall


Orton's plays are a flamboyant dance with the death he found in life. He liked being 'the fly on the wall' who registered the idiom. His wild adventures taught him to suspect every show of normality. He was dubbed the Oscar Wilde of the Welfare State by the Observer. 'The Erpingham Camp' was first presented as a radio play by Rediffusion on 27 June 1966.


Louche Theatre's production will be of the first staged version, produced by The Royal Court Theatre on 6 June 1967.


During May there will be a small tour of venues in Wales, and on 15 August the show opens at Greenside (venue209), Nicholson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Treasure Island

As Lady Trelawney in Treasure Island. Louche Theatre. Nov 2015


​On Saturday evening I saw one of the most detailed and effective examples of ensemble acting I have ever seen.
Louche Theatre's production of Treasure Island, adapted by Phil Willmott, burst onto the stage in a riot of sound, colour and action as the pirates made their entrance. The faces of the audience broke into smiles from ear to ear, and I knew I was in for a treat of exciting and entertaining

As Hannah Jarvix in Arcadia by Tom Stoppard July 2014


...the vivacious Milly Jackdaw who oozes Felicity Kendall but instead of searching for the good life, she searches for the hermit of Sidley Park and in the process rejects the romantic advances of both Nightingale and Valentine, justifying her spinster status by quipping that men have the advantage of providing sex on demand but the disadvantage of removing the option of farting in bed.

Portrait of Dylan

As Caitlin Thomas in Portrait of Dylan. By Tony Layton.
Louche Theatre. May 2014


Louche Theatre’s slick and detailed production...

Milly Jackdaw as Caitlin Thomas gave us all the passion, anger, and recklessness of Caitlin. Again it was obvious that Jackdaw understood her character so well. When Dylan and Caitlin were together on stage the sparks flew, both for the actors and the characters.

The Snow Queen

As The Snow Queen. Louche Theatre. Dec 2013


On Sunday afternoon I experienced the effect that good theatre can have on children. The packed audience at the Morlan Centre consisted of about 25% under 8’s. From the opening scene they were spellbound. Eyes starred in amazement, no shuffling or shouts, just pure involvement. And that goes for the adults too.

Milly Jackdaws Snow Queen was creepy and powerful in just the right amounts. She had wonderful use of expressions and movement, especially as she moved through the audience.

Giants & Saplings

Purple Broccoli Theatre. Nettlefold Children's Theatre, Norwood and tour of Lambeth Primary Schools.


There was a time when all this land was filled with forest,

There were trees from shore to shore.

The Bear the Boar the Wolf were here and fairies flourished.

It's not the same here anymore.


This was the perfect place for human habitation,

You could not want for anymore,

But now the trees could do with their own tv station,

To let the humans know the score.


The trolls are all of a dither. They have rescued the giants orphaned baby and now must find a way to take her mind off her loss. How better than to tell her stories of her wider family, the trees of the world? Join the Trolls as they bring to life three tree tails each one from a different culture.


Purple Broccoli Theatre. Horniman Museum in the summer of 2005


'Skip ye merrily down into the dell, where the Hawthorn, Elder and great Oak dwell'


Based on an English folk tale, 'Toadstone' takes us deep into the heart of an ancient forest where all the secrets of the earth are held within a magical jewel. In the wrong hands it's power could be devastating. And the wrong hands come seeking......

And beneath the tree there is a Toad, and in it's head a fabulous jewel.....
