Over the last two years I have been lucky to be supported in my professional development as an artist by Theatre Is. I was invited to take part, first in training, then in a research and development project: 'Apple Cart' with Oily Cart Theatre and Apples and Snakes. This gave me invaluable experience in working with the country's leading theatre company producing work for the very young and children with profound and multiple learning difficulties.

Forthcoming projects


I am now part of Escalator: Arts Council East's artist development programme, supported by The Junction, Cambridge.


I have made a Grants for the Arts application to research storytelling theatre for under two year olds.


I am in the planning stages of collaborative piece for pre-school children with storyteller Marion Leeper.

What people say

"Kathryn proved herself a core contributor in this interactive and multisensory form of theatre and clearly has great empathy for very young children. We were all greatly impressed with Kathryn and hope that she can be part of the team creating a new Oily Cart production in 2010." Tim Webb, Artistic Director, Oily Cart theatre
