Oxford Playhouse – 2017
This rarely performed, and incredibly dark, Tennessee Williams play was put on by the Experimental Theatre Club. Gender blind casting lead to challenging makeup, and I drew on my drag-makeup origins to transform a male actor into Violet Venable. Dramatic SFX bruising makeup was needed for the abused and beaten Catharine, while some editoral makeup aided into creating the surreal atmosphere of the Doctor. The makeup was integral in helping build the uncanny and sinister power of this production.
