Theatre & New Writing
For several years, I held the position of Artistic Director for Glasgow-based theatre company, Rhymes with Purple where I was responsible for the company's programming, script writing, fundraising, business development, production, and marketing.
In this position, I amassed a vast amount of experience as a multitasking project manager. I set my own goals to advance the company which included establishing and nurturing professional and creative networks, sourcing and applying for funding, establishing links with other companies and developing relationships with venues, artists, and relevant media.
In my additional role as Marketing Manager, Rhymes with Purple achieved critical success, several sell-out runs of new work and won “Best Scottish Theatre or Dance Company” at the 2009 Scottish Variety Awards against stiff competition including the Scottish Ballet and the National Theatre of Scotland.
Rhymes with Purple produced many projects including 5 plays. Click the poster for info on each production.
"This is an extremely talented, local company. One to look out for."
Edinburgh Guide 2005
"A great concept ... laden with pop references and approached in a fun and modern way ... well acted and personable ... flamboyant, diverting and frequently chaotic."
Three Weeks Magazine 2007
"An evening of unashamed fun with Rhymes with Purple ... lively, enthusiastic in the extreme and met with a brilliant reception ... a great success"
"A promising and still relatively new company with a penchant for comedy"
"It's good to see a young, shoestring company delving into the more neglected corners of the Scottish repertoire"
