Katie is a performer, director and theatre maker living and working in Exeter. After coming to the city to do her drama degree at Exeter university, Katie found she couldn't bear to leave. She has toured widely with her own theatre company with, 'Theatre Rush', and with her solo show, WILD, which is part of The Birth Project.
Previous performing credits include Helena in 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' at Exeter Northcott, Vera in 'The Blitz Project' and Annie in 'Beanfield' at The Bike Shed Theatre. Katie co- directed 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' with Fin Irwin, directed 'After Dark' by Hugh Janes at The Bike Shed and joined the Quirk team to direct 'The King With Donkey's Ears', 'Ernie & The Sea of Ice', 'Lucy and The Lost Ones' and 'Puffin Island.
Katie's favourite toy was a pound puppy (remember those?) called Scruffy who she couldn't live without. Scruffy was her favourite, but Katie believed all her toys were real, and when she was finally a bit too grown up to have quite so many soft toys and they were relegated to the loft, she made her mum put air holes in the bin bag.
