Playing my understudy role of Jaques…
I have recently finished being part of the rep company for the Royal Shakespeare Company. I started working with the RSC in 2018 and have been performing in ‘As You Like It’ and ‘Measure for Measure’ since then. We played a season in Stratford-Upon-Avon, The Lowry, Salford, The Barbican Theatre, London and then a UK tour. I finished the tour playing my Understudy role of Jaques in ‘As You Like It’, being the first visually impaired actor to go on as an Understudy for the Royal Shakespeare Company!
