Prior to this was Harpy, a new play written for Su Pollard which has toured the UK, straddling lockdowns.

Jack and the Beanstalk for the Mercury Theatre, Colchester and a double bill of Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing for Merely Theatre were other recent successes.
Her production of Pride and Prejudice for Two Actors was a big hit in South Korea in 2019 and brought back in 2020, having co-created it way back in 2013, then seeing it through three UK tours and a run in Jermyn Street Theatre in the West End. Adapting novels for the stage is one of her passions and in the last few years she has also co-created and directed the world premiere stage adaptation of Malcolm Pryce’s cult novel, Aberystwyth Mon Amour, a rollicking new adaptation of The Canterbury Tales for Guildford Shakespeare Company, and tours of classics Cider with Rosie and Three Men in a Boat.
