I have had an amazing experience through festival week, from seeing almost all ten plays, to running about backstage with the Vera Dymond team. It’s been one hell of a learning curve! I loved the general atmosphere around New Century House and being able to feel the camaraderie between all the individual shows. We all wanted each other to succeed and would help out as much as possible.
I think my favourite moment of the festival was our final Vera Dymond performance. The show had had time to grow into something beyond anything I had seen in the rehearsal room and the whole team had come together to support one another.
The Foot in the Door programme has given me more confidence to go for the jobs I really want and has taught me so much about networking! The 24:7 team are all talented, hardworking and genuinely lovely people and I hope I have the opportunity to work with them all again next year.
