Clare is an actor, writer, audio describer and theatre creative based in Auckland.

Most recently a piece of Clare’s writing titled ‘Oh Dear’ was published in a collection of new work by boutique Auckland based publishing press Cloud Ink. The collection is titled Fresh Ink.

She holds a BA in Theatre and English Literature from Victoria University and a Master of Arts in Acting from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Her masters included a residency at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.

As a performer, she has been described as charming, brave, compelling, passionate & an unfettered fireball with bucket loads of talent and vision.

Performance highlights so far have included The Tempest, When the Rain Stops Falling (Tron Theatre, Glasgow), The Main Yvette (Edinburgh Fringe & Rich Mix London), Sink or Swim (Platform, Glasgow), and In Other Words (Lyric Hammersmith, London).  You can check out her full CV here. 

In 2017 she received development funding from Creative Scotland  to develop solo show What Would Kanye Do? which then premiered at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it received positive reviews and was shortlisted for the  Scottish Arts Club Theatre Award.

Clare’s writing has been published in print in 2014 in a collection titled Letter to an Unknown Soldier as part of the 1418 Now WW1 Centenary, and she has also had her poetry featured on Edinburgh based online magazine Hot Tub Astronaut.

Excited by pushing creative boundaries and creating new work, Clare has been in several original casts and is often involved in the development of new material.

Clare is now auditioning and developing her own projects.
