Quarter-Finalist in ‘Laughing Horse Competition’ last year, she recently won ‘The Lion’s Den’ in November 2008 and performs regularly all over the country.
We will then delight you with the tale of various freaky folk in an alternate world, a London not entirely different from our own, but one where a few people are on back to front. Starring Jessica Fostekew, Maxine Ridout, Jo Bowis, Toby Williams and Drummond Bowskill.
