Sophie Methuen – Turner’s Yearly Roundup

Soon it’s that dreaded time of the year.. the days get colder ( and shorter), dodgy Christmas hits can be heard from all the shops.. yes, my Birthday must be looking. On the one hand, it’s quite an exciting prospect – I get to see my friends, family, get a few gifts, a free milkshake from Ed’s Easy Diner, a free burger from Smashburger.. But part of me feels.. a little bit out of date, miles behind everyone else. So, I have decided to pile together some of the highlights of the year – starting from 17 November 2016 to what should be 17November 2017.

I performed in three murder mysteries this year, and more are booked for later in November / December, one with a company I have been trying to get to take me for years

Lacey Drawers and Ace Heartbreaker performed again at bar Woteva! In London

I was a shrink in The Holes in Hove Grown Festival

I was in Petrushka at the Rialto in Brighton for Brighton Fringe festival

I performed in a horror ball at the Komedia in Brighton

I was Princess Diana in a rehearsed reading of a play by Lady Colin Campbell and the costume designer said that when she closed her eyes ( during my performance ) she could see Diana

Acting Moon Events took me on as an interactive performer and I have performed with them many times at Groombridge Place

Tim Coakley hired me to perform one of his plays and to help market an already existing one

Fresh agency have hired me on more than one occasion, primarily as a promoter.

I have managed to acquire work for the majority of December as an Elf in Churchill Square shopping Centre

Now I have looked back on my year, I see many things have been achieved. Yes it’s hard work, yes you need to have a tough skin. But slowly, with patience and determination it can be done.
