Alex loves watching television, reading books, pottering round the house, going to talks about urban design and daydreaming – all excellent activities costing almost nothing. An expert at keeping under budget in most areas of her life – makes pastry, mends t-shirts – when it comes to theatre all bets are off. She has not regretted going into the red for late night comedy, brainy big idea plays, period productions nor immersive run-a-round-a-warehouse sort of theatre. She judges productions on their own merits and most recently she loved BLAM. Thank you, Visa. When she isn’t watching theatre, she makes it; she toured with the Cambridge Footlights before training as an actress in London and is now studying towards a Masters in Drama at the University of Auckland.
