Rebellious Acts - meet our writers: Liz Carroll

Meet the writers behind Female Arts 'Rebellious Acts' production this Saturday 14th May at South Street Arts Centre. Introducing Liz Carroll, the writer of 'Private'.

PRIVATE: Henry is a military man and has just been promoted, life is looking up - so why is Celia his wife acting so strangely and why can't she just pull herself together?

LIZ CARROLL is a writer, theatre maker, and actor. She has had her short plays performed in the last seven annual Writefests at Progress Theatre plus her longer play “SH!T” at the Camden Fringe. Her directing credits include “People in Cages” and co-directing of “Moonlight and Magnolias”. As an actor Liz has appeared in many productions at Progress Theatre including “The Comedy of Errors”, three Brecht plays, the Aunt in “Two Clever by Half”, Mam in “Enjoy”, The Grandmother in “Kindertransport”, and roles in Getting Over Steven, Blithe Spirit, and The Ash Girl. Dramatherapy formed a part of Liz's course at The Institute for Arts and convinced Liz of the therapeutic value of drama and all things artistic.
